Opportunities and Resources

The Graduate School encourages students to take advantage of a full array of support services throughout their program length. A variety of support programs and services are in place to ensure timely progress and academic success in a student’s degree program. Your academic department and faculty adviser will be your first point of contact for information and support. Together with the deans and administrators in the Graduate School, they will work with you to answer questions about academic policies and procedures, resolve any problems and direct you to specialized services.

Two kinds of academic support programs are available: those run by the Graduate School - Academic Affairs; and those run by other offices and centers at Princeton.

Academic Affairs administers support programs geared toward assisting graduate students gain skills needed to complete their degrees in a timely manner. These academic support programs enable graduate students to complete academic milestones through participation in our Summer Language Program, become more informed about status changes and degree requirements through our academic programming, and develop competitive proposals for external fellowships including the Fulbright-IIE, Fulbright-Hays, and DAAD through participation in workshops.

Academic Affairs also partners with other campus offices to develop programming that supports the academic goals of graduate students. Graduate students can take advantage of campus resources to improve their writing, gain teaching experience, and receive academic support.
