Advising: If you have questions and concerns, contact appropriate department members. This is your graduate degree; make sure the program is a good match in terms of your interests and ultimate goals.
Application: Apply early. Sometimes GRE scores, transcripts, and letters of recommendation can be lost in the mail or slow to arrive. Moreover, the staff of the graduate school needs time to process application materials for departments across the campus. It is your responsibility to check that all of your required materials have arrived at USU. Nominations for the key graduate school fellowships occur near the end of February: remember your application must be complete to be considered.
Registration: We will hold places for you in our graduate classes but you will want to register early for language classes which tend to fill up quickly. Try to arrive in Logan a few weeks before the semester begins so you can take care of registration.
Housing: Start looking for housing early in the summer before the fall semester you intend to enroll. Visiting Logan and looking for an apartment or house for yourself is the best approach. Many students, however, must secure housing over the telephone. Call the housing office or contact one of the apartment finding services listed in the Logan yellow pages. Additionally, current graduate students may be of some assistance in helping you locate housing.
