WCU recently transitioned from a Graduate Studies Office to a Graduate School to provide a wide range of services for the growing population of students interested in pursuing graduate degree programs at the university. Throughout the last five years, WCU’s graduate enrollment has increased 38.7 percent.
Thursday’s information session will enable attendees to learn more about WCU’s 80-plus graduate programs, discuss graduate assistantship opportunities, and receive a $50 application fee waiver.
As the central graduate administrative unit at WCU, the Graduate School supports graduate students from entry through degree completion by providing guidance about the degree process, graduation requirements, and theses and dissertation submissions.
“The Graduate School approaches the student experience holistically to provide consistent support from initial enrollment through graduation, ensuring our graduates are equipped to succeed both personally and professionally,” said Executive Vice President and Provost Laurie Bernotsky.
“Access continues to be at the heart of every school and college at West Chester University,” said Deputy Provost and Dean of the Graduate School Jeffery Osgood Jr. “Over the past five years, we have seen an increasing number of graduate students who are opening themselves to potential new responsibilities, new jobs, and are reinventing themselves for career changes. These students are engaged in life-long learning and are preparing themselves for numerous possibilities.”
