Whether you are an admissions, Masters, Ph.D. or fellowship coordinator (or all four) you are often the first contact students have with UW-Madison or your department. You may be asked about applying to graduate school, your program requirements, and deadlines for fellowships. The resources on this page can lead you to many of the answers.
Graduate School Administrative KnowledgeBase (KB)
This KB is an essential resource for graduate programs. In it you will find information about:
Program/Unit Directory Information
The Graduate School maintains information about staff in all graduate-degree granting departments and programs. You can use this directory to view other program's contact information. We use this directory when sending information to departmental faculty and staff. The Graduate School relies on departments/programs to keep their directory up to date. To find out who should be updating your directory, check with your admissions coordinator or program chair.
Our Academic Programs
This list, called "Our Academic Programs" or "Major Areas of Study", includes all active graduate-level academic programs at UW-Madison. This page is frequented by prospective graduate students seeking more information about our programs. Within each page we link to the program website; provide contact information for admissions; list deadlines and admissions requirements, including whether or not the GRE is required; and give program statistical information on admissions, enrollment, student funding, and degrees.
The KnowledgeBase offers training for graduate admissions coordinators on the graduate admissions processes. If you have questions, please contact the admissions staff (left column). GWIS was created by the Graduate School to allow electronic communication between departments and Graduate School admissions office.
