For Graduate Programs

  • Policies: Policies and Guidelines for SOM graduate programs are created by the Committee on Master’s and PhD programs. The list of current policies can be found on the OGBE Policy Finder page. Individual graduate program policies must be in compliance with SOM and University policies and should be detailed in the program’s handbook.
  • Resources: OGBE maintains a Teams site for graduate program administrators that contains guides and information on different topics. Additionally, the University provides guides such as the SIS Help & Training Materials page and the Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM) page.
  • Data Management: The various systems used by SOM graduate programs can be accessed through the GBE Landing Page. Each program may request additional program-specific links to be added to their view.
