Please visit here to learn more about graduate funding. The CVM offers stipends to students. A limited number are reserved for returning students while the majority are used for new students. Applicants are evaluated during the admissions process on the merit of their application. A separate stipend application is not used.

Is there an orientation for new graduate students?

A mandatory Graduate Student Orientation is held for new students in mid-August (normally at the Jane S. McKimmon Center). It is a general orientation organized by different institutions of the university to familiarize all the incoming graduate students with campus. A handbook will be distributed at the orientation. It includes all the information you need to know about our university, such as transportation, housing, computer services and financial aid. Most importantly, a "check list" will tell you the target dates of important administrative tasks you need to finish, such as when to sign the “Patent Agreement” and when to submit the “Plan of Work,” etc.

In addition, some programs offer a program related orientation. Students will receive notification of the date and time.

How does a new student know which classes to take?

A new student should contact his or her advisor to develop the “Plan of Work” for the student’s curriculum. If an advisor has not been selected yet, the student should meet with the director of his or her graduate program (DGP).

How do I apply for NC Residency?
