Our graduate students are truly part of what makes us special. You can find resources here if your journey is underway.

For graduate students who call the University of Iowa home, you will find resources here that will assist in making your graduate career a success.

Graduate College rules and deadlines shape graduate education at the UI. With these rules and deadlines helping guide your graduate plan, your academic experience culminates by creating your thesis and dissertation. During the semester in which you plan to graduate, there are many things to track and complete on a graduation checklist.

In addition to the above support provided by our Office of Academic Affairs, the Graduate College provides a wide variety of financial assistance to help master’s and doctoral students meet their educational, living, and professional development expenses. Graduate teaching and research assistant appointments, employment terms, benefits, and conditions are governed by a Graduate Assistant Employment agreement.

Whether your goal is a career in academe, industry, government, or elsewhere, professional development can expand your options and make you more marketable to employers.

The Graduate College is committed to providing an inclusive educational experience for graduate students while helping them figure out campus and graduate life.
