Plan for Grad School

Our counselors can help you prepare for graduate school entrance, find the right school for your area of interest, search for financial aid, and prepare your graduate school application.

Exploring Grad Programs

Nothing beats a one-on-one session with a pro from the Career & Counseling Center. But these online resources are helpful, too, as they offer comprehensive information and advice on grad programs.

Your counselor can suggest web resources for graduate programs in medicine, business, law or any other field you might be considering.

Preparing For Entrance

Exams: The Career & Counseling Center can help you register and study for graduate school entrance exams: the GRE, MCAT, OAT, PCAT, DAT, GMAT, MAT, and LSAT. Check out study guides from our library.

Essays: We offer resources on writing effective entrance essays. Our counselors can help you revise this essential part of your grad school application. The Cooper Center is another great place to sharpen your entrance essays.

Financing Grad School

Wondering how to afford graduate school? While the schools you apply to are the primary source of financial assistance, a variety of resources on campus and online can complete the picture.

Faculty Support: NWU students receive outstanding support from faculty in their pursuit of prestigious scholarships and fellowships for graduate study.
