Dear All,

I write to extend to you a warm welcome to the 2024 academic year from the Office of Graduate Studies. We are here to help you achieve your educational and career goals while enjoying an excellent graduate student experience.    Please take a moment to drop by our Events website and view our “Events Calendar” to see which social and career development activities sponsored by our office fits your interests.  Also, please note that your Graduate Student Senate hosts several social events, professional development opportunities, and open forums to discuss issues pertinent to graduate students.   Lastly, we are still in the swing of TCU’s 150th anniversary celebration.   The campus will be abuzz with numerous special events, banners and advertisements highlighting our sesquicentennial celebration.

We can’t wait to personally greet you and welcome our first timers to our campus.  Go Frogs!

Best wishes,

Dr. Wormley

johnny nhanWelcome to the Office of Graduate Studies at TCU! I am personally committed to helping to build and promote a healthy, vibrant, and diverse graduate community. If you are interested in graduate school, TCU is an excellent choice with top teacher-scholars to help you unleash your full potential whether you are earning your graduate certificate, master’s degree, or doctorate. You will find our faculty take pride in creating a unique, personal experience throughout your time at TCU. You will emerge as a leader in your field and the global community, as many scientists, doctors, educators, entrepreneurs, and professionals with TCU graduate degrees have done before.

The Office of Graduate Studies is here to help you with your education endeavor, whether you are a new or existing student. We are here to help develop your educational potential and community engagement through workshops, training, and social events. Attending these events will help you connect with the graduate office and other graduate students, where you will see opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations and perhaps more importantly, friendships. I also encourage you to get involved with the Graduate Student Senate.

Graduate school is often difficult but we are here to help! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, no matter how big or small, or if you’d just like to chat about anything.

Go Frogs!
