Academic Affairs

The University of Iowa Graduate College Academic Affairs Office (AAO) is responsible for supporting graduate student academic progress and success. Have a question? We can help. We oversee degree progress and completion, student records, and thesis and dissertation support and examination. We coordinate with departments and campus partners to manage the rules and standards of graduate education with a focus on academic excellence and evidence-based initiatives to shape and improve student success.
