Welcome Graduate Students!

Back of Torchbearer statue with flame in front of trees.For those of you starting at UT for the first time, we are glad you’re now part of the family. For those of you returning, we’re pleased to see you again. All of us here at the Graduate School would like to remind you that we are here to help you succeed in your program. If there is anything that we can do to assist you, don’t hesitate to contact us by e-mail ( or phone (865-974-2475). You can also drop by our offices at 111 Student Services; we’d be happy to meet you.

We’ll be working to keep you in the loop on information that you need to know throughout the semester, whether it be graduation deadlines, funding opportunities, or training workshops. One way to stay informed is to visit the Graduate School website, where we maintain resources for pursuing your degree and where we post news that may impact you. We also recommend that you keep track of your email. While we try to keep direct messages to a minimum, this is the primary mode of communication at UT.

There are many other ways to stay up-to-date, including VolUpdate, a newsletter that comes out twice a week, focusing on news that impacts students at UT. Your Graduate Student Senate maintains a website and social media for graduate students and they can be an invaluable resource for you. One Stop Express Student Services is invaluable as it brings the most common student services to one convenient location, including enrollment, academic records, financial aid, and tuition.

The Graduate School hopes that you have a great fall term. Go Vols!
