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 Advising, Pre-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.
