Academic Year 2015-2016


Graduate School Breakfasts. Welcome to a new year of Breakfasts! We invite you to join your graduate faculty and student colleagues for breakfast and creative thinking across disciplines! Hot buffet breakfasts, sponsored by the EVCAA, the Graduate School, and now the Library will be available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the Center Court Restaurant, beginning at 7:30am and ending at 9am.

You are invited to stop by at any point; don't feel you have to stay for the entire time. We do ask, however, that you SIGN UP HERE.

Graduate Student Orientations. All new graduate students and returning graduate students holding a teaching or research assistantship should attend Graduate Student Orientation.

International Graduate Student Orientation:

Wednesday, August 26, 2015, 10a - 12p, Griggs Center

All Graduate Students (international and domestic):

Thursday, August 27, 2015, 10:30 - 2:15, Kirby Rafters

Check the schedule to see which times apply to you.

Defending soon? The deadline to apply for an August graduation month was August 1. All graduation paperwork (exam forms, thesis, etc.) must be submitted and approved by the last business day of the month (August 31) to be eligible for an August graduation. If you will not complete all program requirements before the beginning of fall semester (August 31), you must take action to maintain active status. Talk to your program advisor or DGS about what to take to avoid discontinuation of your student status.
