Academic Resources

Academic Development

Academic Development is the place to go for help with your academic work. Services are designed to help both students who are having academic difficulties and those who just want to improve their performance. They offer everything from academic counseling in study skills to peer tutoring; as well as supplemental instruction and EXCEL collaborative learning groups for select courses.

Carnegie Mellon Enrollment Services

The Carnegie Mellon Enrollment Services, or "The Hub", facilitates student enrollment, guides students and families as administrative and financial partners.  Go here for online course information, online registration, your student information online, and financial aid information.

Graduate Support Programs

The Graduate Support Programs (also known as GPO) offers academically focused seminars and workshops that advise, empower and help retain all graduate students, particularly graduate students of color and women in the science and technical fields.  The fundamental goals of the Graduate Support Programs have been constant for more than 15 years: first, to support, advise and guide individual graduate students as they work to complete their degrees; second, to contribute to the greatest degree possible to the diversification of the academy. This has best been accomplished by guiding graduate students through crisis points in their graduate careers, teaching them best strategies for success now and when they leave, and providing opportunities for interdisciplinary connections, peer and faculty mentoring, and community.

Graduate Student Services

The Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate Education (VPGSE, VPGE), Suzie Laurich-McIntyre, is the university Ombudsman for graduate students. The Ombudsman’s role is to provide support for graduate students under complete confidentiality* unless otherwise told by the graduate student. The Ombudsman will assist and support graduate students to help clarify issues and suggest possible solutions to problems as well as direct students to the appropriate departmental and college processes and resources for handling conflicts.

The Graduate Student Services maintains information on Programs and Services for Graduate Education, Student Health Services, Disability Services, Computing Services, Safety & Environmental Health, and Graduate Student Orientation.
