The Glimpse into Graduate School Seminar Program is an initiative that provides current undergraduate students with the resources, programming, and support that are necessary to achieve their aspirations for graduate study. The goal of the program is to empower students to develop the confidence and skills necessary for success in applying to competitive graduate programs and a comfortable transition to graduate education.
Selected participants will attend seminars and workshops and complete assignments that encompass a wide array of topics relating to graduate school application process. Glimpse sessions are presented by administrators, faculty, staff, and graduate students of MU.
The program also provides students who miss no more than one Glimpse seminar session and/or assignment (or combination as described in the syllabus) are eligible for an application fee waiver for graduate school at the University of Missouri. Also, students who attend all Glimpse sessions and complete all required assignments will be eligible to receive a one-time refund of the cost of a standardized test required for admission to a graduate program. In the case of the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) this refund does not include any costs students may incur for General Subject tests, late fees, or test date change fees. In order to receive a refund for the standardized test, students must provide proof that the test has been taken.
