Our Mission Statement
The IUPUI Graduate Office serves the campus community by advocating for all aspects of graduate education. We provide leadership and administrative structure by:
- Supporting and promoting the success of students as they journey to, into, and through graduate/professional school at IUPUI;
- Providing all students access to quality educational experiences in an inclusive and supportive environment; and
- Keeping students at the center of everything we do.
The Graduate Office engages with students at several key points during their educational career on campus. Responsibilities of office staff include monitoring electronic applications, admitting applicants based upon academic policies and the recommendations of graduate programs, and ensuring that an electronic record is initiated for each student. We also monitor progression to degree completion and confirm degree requirements are met for all IU Graduate School programs and Purdue University master’s and Ph.D. programs offered by our Science and Engineering schools at IUPUI. Graduate Office staff review the format of submitted dissertations or theses for compliance with institutional policies. For IU students, the Graduate Office mails student diplomas. Purdue University diplomas are distributed by individual schools on the IUPUI campus.
The Graduate Office also monitors the progress of non-native English-speaking graduate students in meeting requirements for English for Academic Purposes (EAP).
The office offers workshops and events for prospective students and attends a number of graduate school fairs and conferences, both nationally and regionally, to help recruit quality students to IUPUI.
