Welcome to The Graduate School's new website. Here's a look at some of the new features based on feedback from students, faculty, and staff.
1. Enhanced experience; improved readability
The new site sports a revamped design for a better user experience, including updated typography that helps make the content easier to read.
2. Quicker access to frequently sought information
A new set of user group pages (Applicants, Students, Alumni, Faculty & Staff) provide quick information and links for the most common questions and needs.
High-level pages, such as the home page, now include more quick links to frequently sought information.
A new Records and Registration page provides easy access to information and links about courses, registration, leaves of absence, and other related topics.
The new Policies & Forms page, linked at the top of the site for easy access, collects all Graduate School policies and forms in one centralized location.
3. More guidance on whom to contact
Click "Who Do I Contact About ..." on the Contact page for a list of contacts for common topics. That page also has contact information for each Graduate School office and a general contact form that will route your question to the proper office/individuals.
4. More detailed Theses and Dissertations page
Based on student feedback, the Theses and Dissertations page has been revamped to provide a step-by-step outline of the defense and submission process. We are also working on something similar for prelims and other milestones.
5. New section for DGSs and DGSAs
Directors of graduate studies and directors of graduate studies assistants now have a section specifically for them, which contains the DGS manual; the DGSA manual; a new, searchable DGS and DGSA directory; and a page of training resources. This section will expand as more resources for DGSs and DGSAs are developed.
