The Graduate College

Graduate College staff wearing masksAs President Trauth stated in a recent email to the university community: On July 2, the university is planning for a return of modified face-to-face (hybrid) instruction and services in the Fall. If students are comfortable returning to the San Marcos and Round Rock campuses, the university has many protective measures in place. For students who are not able to return to campus at that time, or choose not to do so, remote learning opportunities are available to keep them on track academically. Not all classes will be available in a remote format; so, students will need to get in touch with their graduate advisors to assess how such a choice would affect their paths toward graduation.

Visit the university's COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date university-wide information.

Whether you are a new or returning student, we wish you great success this semester! We encourage you to review university policies in the Graduate Cataloggraduate services in our welcome video, and other essential information in our student welcome.
