The first step of graduate school is applying and getting accepted. Applying can be an intense process that takes several months to prepare. The reward for enduring the application process and getting accepted is an opportunity to learn a lot, grow professionally, and increase your employability. This workshop will teach you the important steps of the application process, the essential pieces of an application, and how to increase your chance of getting accepted. You will also learn about graduate assistantships and how to apply for them.

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Learn about the timeline of the application process, deadlines, and how to manage your time
