Graduate Studies Management Solution

The Vice-Provost & Associate Vice-President (Information Services & Technology) and the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, in conjunction with the units offering graduate programs, have created a collaborative program to automate the business processes concerning the graduate student life cycles within the University of Alberta. This program comprises of several independent solutions that work together to fulfill the following objectives:

  1. Admissions Process - Provide reduced admission processing time with a comprehensive records system that allows all applicable users (student, admin staff, faculty and chairs) to create, edit and review application submissions, monitor progression, contact the Graduate Program Advisor, and ultimately receive and respond to an offer of admission.
  2. Scholarships & Awards - Assist in matching graduate students with funding sources, managing the application and adjudication processes, enabling payments to recipients, and managing and meeting the financial reporting requirements of the scholarships themselves.
