Graduate School

As of the fall 2019 semester, the Career Services Office no longer schedules individual, one-on-one, appointments related to graduate school assistance. This includes graduate school personal statements, essays, applications, or diversity statements. 

Although we are no longer scheduling these appointments, we are continuing to provide support and assistance in the graduate school application process through a variety of ways. 

Students can access our personal statement workshop online, 24/7. The Career Services Office recommends that students view the 30-minute workshop below to start their personal statement. 

Once you have viewed our personal statement workshop online, we encourage you to view our Personal Statement Checklist to ensure your statement is well polished.
