Graduate Student Affairs Office!
The Henry Samueli School of Engineering (HSSoE) Graduate Student Affairs Office (GSAO) provides a complete range of services for all graduate students in an M.S. or Ph.D. program, as well as for potential students interested in joining a graduate program in engineering. The Samueli School is dedicated to the philosophy of meeting tomorrow’s technological challenges by providing the highest quality engineering education and research today.
From recruitment and admission, to degree conferral and graduation, our office provides many services for new and continuing graduate students. As you navigate toward degree completion, our main function is to provide general counseling and advice for you. We also collaborate with the various departments on many student-related issues. Our office serves as the final school-wide place of approval for petitions, advancements to candidacy, degree conferrals, and other processes.
