Graduate & Professional School Resources for Students

There are a number of useful resources available on campus and online for individuals considering applying to graduate or professional school. Faculty members and professional school advisers are critical to consult with to identify programs that are a good fit for one’s goals, assess your readiness for graduate or professional study, obtain recommendations, and learn more about the application process.

The career center has a resource library with graduate school resources, including books about writing application essays.  Students may also schedule an appointment with a staff member to:

  • Discuss career goals and determine whether graduate study will help 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.
