About the Graduate School

The Graduate School provides a wide range of services to students and academic units. Even before students arrive on campus our staff is here to help.  While prospective students are exploring graduate education, we are here to provide insight into the programs available and the process for applying. Once a student has decided to submit an application, we manage the admissions process in coordination with the academic units.

During the time a student is enrolled at UT, the Graduate School monitors student progress and provides support for student success. In these efforts, we partner with various campus entities including the UT Libraries, Teaching and Learning Innovation, and all of our colleges and departments. As students approach graduation, we evaluate records and verify the awarding of all degrees.

Our office works closely with the Graduate Council to ensure that the policies set by the graduate faculty are clearly defined and consistently enforced. The Graduate School is also responsible for publishing the Graduate Catalog. Besides describing the requirements for all graduate programs, the Graduate Catalog contains policies established by the Graduate Council.

Graduate education is one of the components that makes UT a great university. The Graduate School is a full partner in supporting the university’s mission, vision, and the values embodied in the Volunteer Spirit.
