The staff of the Graduate Division serve potential, current, and alumni graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. We work with many campus units to accomplish our mission of supporting graduate student and postdoctoral scholar success, during and after their time at UCSC.

When UC Santa Cruz reopens fall of 2021, the Division of Graduate Studies will reopen with staff offering in-person appointments. Connect with us via email and social media.
