Admissions Training for Faculty and Staff (2.5 hours)
The Graduate Admissions Basic Training course is aimed at teaching Graduate Coordinators, Director's of Graduate Studies, and other UArizona staff members who work with graduate admissions how to assist students with the graduate application process, how to enter departmental recommend and deny decisions in GradApp, how to manage the public-facing Graduate Catalog and Programs Description Guide, how to best use the new Reviewer Module for Faculty Review Committee members, and provide an overview of admissions processes. We will review:
- Graduate Admissions basic policies and requirements
- Program Description Guide management
- GradApp utilities and best use practices
- UAccess utilities
The course is led by Rhea Gowin and is designed not only as an introductory course but as a refresher course as well.
This class is mandatory for all Graduate Coordinators, Directors of Graduate Studies, and/or Department Heads who need provisioned with configuration or decision roles in GradApp. The course is not required for Faculty Review Committee members. Faculty ReviewCommittee member permissions can be added by their academic department Graduate Coordinator, whom they should reach out to for questions.
For hands on training, feel free to bring a laptop or other electronic device so you may follow along with the projector.
