Admissions, Visits, Financial Support
Director of Graduate Recruiting
Dr. Papish and the Graduate Recruiting Committee handle admissions and financial support decisions, coordinate visits by prospective students, and generally supervise the department’s recruiting and outreach events.
Graduate Advising, Enrollment, TA Assignments
Dr. Snowden oversees the graduate curriculum and acts as an advisor to our graduate students. He is your best point of contact for questions regarding enrollment, class selection, and TA assignments, and any other questions you might have once you have enrolled in our program.
Application Process, Visits, Faculty Contacts
Contact Mercedes Vinson, the Graduate Program Assistant, regarding the application process.
Contacting Other Faculty Members
If you are interested in working with a specific faculty member, feel free to contact them, but be aware that the graduate recruiting committee, not individual faculty, make all admission decisions. In particular, you do not need to contact specific faculty to gain admission to their group before applying to the graduate program.
