Graduate Student Support

The Graduate Student Services Office assists students in the graduate programs of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences throughout their academic careers. From orientation to graduation, the Graduate Student Services Office is dedicated to helping students meet their educational goals. Providing administrative support to academic processes, the Graduate Student Services Office plays a part in transferring academic credit, registering for independent study and completing graduation requirements.

Because graduate study takes place within a particular discipline or subject area, academic advising is provided by the faculty in a student's department or program. Faculty work with graduate students not only on course selection and degree progress monitoring, but, more importantly, to be mentors and advocates through students' programs of study and beyond.

In addition, the coordinator of the Graduate Student Services Office provides supplementary advising on administrative, policy and procedural matters. Generally, the coordinator may serve as a first point of contact for any questions students may have about life at DePaul.
