Before you decide whether or not you want to go to graduate or professional school, it is very important that you take the time to develop clear goals for pursuing this possibility. Obtaining an advanced degree without extensive planning or research could leave you in debt, and further behind in your career. So take time to do the research, reflect on your goals, and explore your options. 

A guide to help you navigate the process and next steps is available on the comprehensive Vocation and Civic Engagement Services Moodle page

The guide includes:

  • Things to consider before applying
  • Timeline for applying
  • How to choose a program or school
  • How to prepare for the application process
  • Additional website resources
