Office of Graduate Studies

The mission of the Office of Graduate Studies is to provide resources, services and leadership that support and guide the graduate academic programs across the university.

Grad students in class

The Office of Graduate Studies supports the 3,000 graduate students enrolled in more than 80 degree and certificate programs across the university. We serve as the center of leadership for graduate education by providing high quality support services for graduate students, faculty, and administrators in order to advance academic excellence, embrace inclusion and diversity, and further TU goals in graduate education. Financial support for graduate students is managed through the Graduate Assistantship Office within Graduate Studies. Additionally, we maintain a standardized process for appointing graduate faculty in accordance with University System of Maryland Policy for institutions that offer doctoral programs.
