The Self-Paced Courses require registration. Please allow 3-5 business days to be added to the Canvas course.
Any questions can be directed to Sarah Kovalesky.

Course Description

Graduate School is a process that can be long and very nuanced depending on the individual.

This course serves as a comprehensive foundation when it comes to considering and then applying to graduate school.
