Graduate School Resources and Assistance at UNC

Students at UNC who are interested in pursuing a graduate or professional degree will need to rely on a variety of resources to get the best information.  Several UNC offices provide some of the resources needed to prepare for graduate and professional school admissions.

  • University Career Services offers graduate and professional school interview preparation assistance.  Students interested in this service should call UCS and ask to schedule a "graduate school mock interview."  An hour of time will be reserved for you with a UCS counselor to practice and discuss the graduate school interview process.
  • University Career Services also offers the three professional and graduate school advising programs: Pre-Graduate AdvisingPre-Health Advising, and Pre-Law Advising
  • The Writing Center can assist you in preparing any essays, statements or writing samples that are required for your application process. 
  • UNC faculty members are also a resource for current students considering graduate school.  Students can seek advice from current-major faculty members or those from departments in which you may seek a graduate degree.  A typical contact is the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the department.  If you are considering a program covered by Pre-Grad Advising (i.e., something other than law school or a health-related field in patient care), the Pre-Grad advisors will be happy to help you identify people to speak with who can give you detailed information on disciplines and programs.
  • Test preparation options are also available at UNC.
