Graduate Academic Services

Graduate Academic Services helps graduate and doctoral students accomplish their educational goals by ensuring university-wide standards of quality, access, and equity in graduate and doctoral programs. Our ultimate goal is to help our diverse student population feel taken care of and valued as members of the university community. We achieve this through accurate and timely communication, upholding university and departmental policies, and providing checks and balances as students navigate their way through their educational journey at the University of La Verne.

The Graduate Handbook can be found here.
