Admission Contacts and Deadlines
Can I schedule an appointment with an advisor? Am I eligible to apply to more than one graduate program at the same time? Yes, there is no limit on the number of graduate programs you can apply to, but you are required to submit an application fee for each application you submit.
For more information, please contact the Graduate School and we will be happy to assist you. We can then send a request for the change to the new academic department for your The course must have been taken within the time limit of the student’s The graduation date is the date in which degrees are awarded.
A minimum of 30 graduate credits are required for a master’s degree; 21 must be in the student’s major field unless a higher number is required by the student’s program. The grade-point average for the courses counted toward the degree must be 3. A minimum of one-half of the total required credits must be on a letter-graded basis. Credits transferred from another institution cannot be used to satisfy the university’s requirement for graded credits nor the course level requirement.
Graduate courses which have been applied toward any baccalaureate or advanced degree may not be used for fulfilling requirements for any other master’s degree at the university. No foreign language is required by the Graduate School; however, some programs do require a language proficiency. Refer to the Graduate School Bulletin and program literature for foreign language requirements and the competency levels. Although the Graduate School does not require a general master’s examination, some programs do.
In programs which do require a final examination, the examination is not optional to individual students; all students must take it. For students choosing the thesis option, a final examination is required, and it may not necessarily be limited to the thesis topic. The result of the examination should be forwarded to the Graduate Student Service Center.
I was curious about what others thought about dating in grad school, esp. I’ve heard that grad school is the last opportunity to meet a large group of intellectual and ambitious people at once. Since educated people tend to marry other educated people and meeting people once you’re part of the workforce is difficult, is grad school a great place to meet a SO? Or is dating other grad students a bad idea because of professional considerations?
Should people just avoid dating grad students in their own program ex. Does it matter by program level because of the potential for students to be your close colleagues?
From the liberal arts to engineering, our students cross graduate programs and For up-to-date information, please visit the COVID website. 95% of doctoral students) have their post-degree plans set within six months of graduation.

If the student has applied to a degree program or certain non-degree programs, the admission is dependent upon the recommendation of the department of proposed study. Only students who have submitted completed applications will be considered for admission. Students applying to degree programs should consult their prospective departments since many departments impose additional requirements.
Departments may specify conditions of admission for any applicant they recommend for admission, but it is their responsibility to monitor such conditions. The following general categories are used to evaluate all applicants for admission and competitive scholarships:. All academic records may be considered. If the applicant’s bachelor’s degree is not complete when the application is made, six semesters or three years of course work are required.
After the degree is completed, a final transcript showing the degree awarded must be submitted. The only exception is for accelerated bachelor-master’s programs, sometimes called hour programs. The only test scores required for admission consideration by the Graduate School are English proficiency scores for international applicants. International applicants must submit proof of English proficiency as part of their application materials.
Academic programs may require additional standardized tests e.

Both of us and the rest of the Graduate School team, Felicia Burud and Erin Kirchner, are here to support you succeed in your graduate studies. Our current plan is to reopen for in-person business in mid-August while still being available virtually. To our new students, our Fall Orientation for new graduate students is Friday, August 21, and is an online event. To our continuing students, we are impressed with the stories we have heard from faculty members about the progress you have continued to make over the summer as you have adapted to the realities of this pandemic.
Despite these challenges, the opportunities for graduate study that attracted you to Alaska and UAF remain, and new opportunities will continue to emerge. In these times, it is more important than ever to stay connected and informed. As well as maintaining contact with your advisors, programs, and peers, please keep in touch with us at the Graduate School. We want to hear your stories, both to celebrate your successes, and help you address any challenges.
Hearing from students across the university allows us to understand the challenges that are common to all students as well as those specific to certain groups of students. We will be keeping our website updated with details about our operations this semester.
Graduate Student Handbook
New graduate students are accepted for entrance in Fall semesters only. All of our graduate programs train students at the doctoral level. Students are selected in terms of their interest in pursuing the doctorate and the probability of their successful completion of that degree. We do not offer separate masters-level programs. All supporting materials, including GRE scores, unofficial transcripts, and letters of recommendation, along with the completed application, should be uploaded by this date.

These relations are fraught because of differences in power and experience, because they can involve serious conflicts of interest and because they can have disruptive effects on the functioning of and climate within our professional workplaces. Graduate school provides a transition between young adulthood and full professional stature, and graduate students mature enormously over the course of their studies.
Before graduating they may participate in many of the professional functions of faculty, including undergraduate teaching, training and supervising new graduate and undergraduate students, evaluating students and writing recommendation letters, managing collaborations, and writing and reviewing manuscripts and proposals.
This is especially true in large research groups, where an overworked and distracted professor may be at the apex of a complex hierarchy of students and postdoctoral associates. Despite this professional trajectory, when it comes to romantic and sexual relations, for graduate students the current unwritten policy is: anything goes.
Suppose A and B, new graduate students, join a research group, and are to be trained by senior graduate student C. Now C starts dating A. Can B expect the same professional attention to his or her development from C? How will the professional development of A and B be impacted if A and C break up? Professor X hires a new student D, who previously dated her student E, but is now dating F in the lab next door. Of course, graduate school is a time when many people meet their first spouse, and there are many examples of successful long-term relationships forged by graduate students in the same group or department just as there are many successful long-term relationships between faculty and their students.
When the resolution of these dual-career situations involves placing both in the same department or workplace, the conflicts of interest and complications to workplace dynamics invariably follow. The problems caused by graduate student dating within the workplace may be especially severe in fields with large gender imbalances.
Those of the minority gender can be subject to extreme social pressure, ranging from being invited to every party and asked to join every study group, to frequent unwanted advances from the lonely or emotionally underdeveloped, to sexual harassment, all accompanied by workplace gossip.

As the leadership of the Graduate School, we want to take this opportunity to welcome our new and continuing graduate students for the Fall semester.
By Sharon Wu. Coupled with our developing passions for what we study, an encounter with someone with a depth of knowledge in our field can be incredibly alluring. But what about TAs? They walk the fine line between equal and superior. And they too are usually intelligent, accomplished, published, and passionate. We experience our TAs in a much more relaxed, casual setting. All of this makes them much more likely candidates for dating and relationships.
