Grad Academic Resources

Resources for navigating your graduate academic experience

Go to the Graduate Registrar for information on registering for graduate courses, transcript requests, graduation requirements, commencement, and other academic records. 

The Academic Calendar shows all school holidays and breaks, final exam weeks, quad start and end dates, and more. You can also find this calendar on the student portal!

The Writing Center is here to help you in any stage of the writing process! They now have special hours just for graduate students: Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm, and Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-6:00 pm. 

Graduate students are eligible to apply for the Graduate School Conference Participation Grant if they are presenting at a conference. Graduate students who are primary authors on a paper or project accepted for oral presentation by a recognized and respected professional society and who will actually make the presentation will receive funding priority. Graduate student first-authors on poster presentations are also eligible for funding. Non-presenting graduate students, even if cited as authors on the presented work, are not eligible to receive these grants. First-time recipients of the grant will present a poster of their work at the annual Poster Session during Grad Life Week.

To apply for the grant, please complete this form

Wheaton's campus hosts a variety of spaces where students can buckle down and get to studying/paper writing/reading a mountain of articles. Here are a few of the most popular:

  • Buswell Memorial Library offers spaces for group collaboration and individual study.
  • The BGC Archive Library is located on the 3rd floor of the Billy Graham Center. Come for a quiet place to study among fellow grad students. (And when you have time, come check out the fascinating archive collections held here!)
  • If you prefer a little more activity/noise in your study space, come to the Grad Lounge on the 2nd floor of the Billy Graham Center. 
  • Finally, if background noise is your preferred study music, head to Lower Beamer to get things done! Choose from a booth in the Stupe, a high table at Sam's or a chair in the lounge area.
  • One additional resource to note is the Wheaton Public Library. Ranked #9 in the nation for a community of its size, the library has a wide offering of materials, quiet study spaces, and even its own cafe. Located within walking distance of campus, WPL is a space you don't want to miss.
