Consider Graduate and Professional School

Consider Graduate or Professional School
Pursuing a graduate or professional degree is an important decision that requires significant planning. If you don’t have a clear reason for considering graduate school, it may be to your advantage to discuss your thoughts with a Gateway Counselor. Take the time to collect the necessary information to confirm that a graduate degree is the right next step for you. Starting the process early will allow time to: think about what you want to do and why; consider all your options; and ultimately prepare the best application materials possible.


Gain a better understanding of the types of degrees available and key tips for researching programs in your field of interest. Also, access special information for international students.

Money for graduate study comes in a variety of forms. Keep in mind that deadlines for financial aid applications are frequently earlier than regular admission deadlines, so be sure to research your options well in advance. Learn more about financing your education and access resources here.
