Graduate Studies maintains student records pertinent to graduate study at BYU, including original applications and official transcripts received from other universities. All U.S. student application documents are imaged, as are the documents of international students who are admitted. The imaged documents of U.S. applicants not admitted are purged in the second year after the submitted application. The imaged application of students who are admitted but fail to finish their degree are destroyed after ten years.

Despite the well-meaning efforts of students and faculty, there may be occasions when a graduate student feels that his or her work has been unfairly or inadequately evaluated. Usually such differences can be amicably resolved between the student and faculty member. The following procedures are designed to encourage satisfactory resolution of academic grievances with a minimum of formal procedure.

What is the Grad Expo?

The Grad Expo is different than the Grad Fair. It is an opportunity for one student from each department to showcase their own best research.

How should I present?

First off, you don't have to be grad students to be a volunteer.

We need volunteers in 2-hour shifts, either 10-12 or 12-2.  We want about 60 volunteers--30 per 2-hour shift, and are still looking for a few more.

To volunteer, email us at ASAP. Please give us your shirt size & which shift you want (must be able to do a shift for shirt/lunch)

For volunteering you receive:

  1. Free shirt
  2. Free lunch
  3. Amazing volunteer opportunity--it will be fun!
