Becoming a Graduate Student
Applying to Graduate School
Please note that graduate students must apply to the university AND to a specific graduate program.
For questions about a specific program, contact the program's advisor.
As a grad student, there is a lot of information you need to know in addition to academic knowledge—for example, how to access your student email account or how to buy a parking permit. In the past, finding this information required searching through multiple web pages, which can take valuable time away from important goals like studying, working, or conducting research. Navigating Grad Studies at the Beach solves this problem, by providing a centralized online space for all grad students to learn about campus resources, student support services, and the path to graduation.
