Preparing for Graduate School workshop to be held

UGA Graduate School offers insight for those seeking graduate education

Athens, Ga. – To quell anxieties frequently associated with pursuing graduate education, the University of Georgia Graduate School is offering its annual Preparing for Graduate School workshop on Wednesday, Feb. 25 from 5-7 p.m. in room 102 of the Miller Learning Center.

Although it is targeted primarily to UGA undergraduates, the workshop is open to the public and will cover topics ranging from navigating standardized test requirements to finding financial support for the often long-term commitment of graduate study. It will offer information specific to graduate and professional programs at UGA as well as general information about other regional and state institutions.

The first segment of the workshop will focus on graduate admissions, including a panel discussion with faculty members of graduate programs. The second segment will address financing and budgeting items and offer a question and answer session with a panel of current UGA graduate students.

According to Graduate School administrators, participants should leave the workshop knowledgeable of application and enrollment requirements as well as the commitments needed to complete an advanced degree.

Those interested in attending the free workshop should reserve a space at grecruit@uga.edu by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24.
