Graduate Student Success Center

The Graduate Student Success Center was created with the graduate student at its core. We are here to enhance your graduate student experience by promoting holistic development and creating a community of belonging.

However, the departments cannot do it all; and our focus is on helping to identify and provide support to you so that you can navigate your journey successfully. 

The Graduate Student Success Center was established to support potential graduate students, current students, faculty, and staff in the areas of

  • Graduate Student Support & Engagement
  • Office of Graduate Professional Development
  • Graduate Recruitment
  • Postdoc Affairs & Prestigious Awards
  • Grad Care

With any project we work on or whomever we are assisting, values frame our efforts.  The  values that shape our work include

  • Integrity
  • Service
  • Advocacy
  • Empathy
  • Collaboration
  • Innovation

About Health Compliance

Students must comply with the University’s immunization and health insurance requirements. More information and submission instructions about both of these prerequisites can be found at:

Immunizations: Vaccine-preventable diseases do still exist, and contracting these illnesses can have an adverse effect on a student’s health, well-being, and ability to reach optimal academic performance. Students shall be required to show documentation of specific vaccinations or proof of immunity for Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR), Hepatitis B, and Meningitis. Please note that international students and those entering most academic health professions may have additional requirements, including tuberculosis screening. Find the immunization form and instructions online at:

Insurance: The University follows an Opt Out system where students who don’t opt out by providing documentation of adequate health insurance will be automatically enrolled in the school-sponsored plan. They may either purchase outside health insurance that meets the requirements for comparable coverage, or they can be auto-enrolled in the school-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.

If a student currently has insurance, they will be required to review their insurance coverage and check that it meets the requirements set forth as comparable coverage. They will then need to submit a waiver with their policy information for verification by the end of drop/add but ideally much earlier. The charge for the school-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan will be removed once the submission is completed and verified. Once verified, the waiver is good for one year. All this can be done online at
