Graduate & Professional School Resources for Alumni

There are a number of useful resources available for individuals considering applying to graduate or professional school. As a graduate of West Chester University, it is recommended that you reconnect with faculty members for advice and information.

The Career Development Center has a resource area with graduate school resources and free publications profiling graduate programs. Alumni may also schedule an appointment with a Career Development staff member to:

  • Discuss career goals and determine whether graduate study will help to achieve and advance those goals.
  • Learn how to research and obtain more information about specific programs of interest.
  • Get assistance with how to identify other factors that help one determine where to apply, such as financial aid, geographic location, size of the institution, student life, and more.
  • Have personal statements, resumes, and related materials reviewed to ensure goals and experiences are well represented within the application.
