Current Students

Welcome to The Graduate School @ UCA!

Orientation

Every fall semester, UCA’s Graduate Dean hosts an Orientation gathering, and all new UCA graduate students are invited to attend. Many graduate programs offer their own orientation gatherings as well. It is highly suggested that attend your program’s gathering in addition to the Graduate School event. The Graduate School Orientation provides information to students about various services on campus, such as the library, HPER, and DegreeWorks. We also discuss the role of mentoring during graduate school and problem solving if/when you run into challenges along the way. The Graduate School Orientation is a great way to meet students from programs around campus and learn about all that UCA has to offer while you are here! Welcome to UCA!!

Graduate School Policy & Procedures

All graduate students at UCA are expected to abide by the policies and procedures outlined in:

  1. The UCA Student Handbook
  2. The UCA Graduate Bulletin
  3. Your specific program handbook

If you are unclear about any of these policies or procedures, it is best to consult the coordinator or director of your graduate program. The Graduate School staff members are also sources of information regarding these policies and procedures.
