Graduate News

The best ways to stay in touch with graduate education at UCF is to read the emails sent to the graduate listservs, attend meetings and training sessions, and contact the College of Graduate Studies anytime you need help.

At the national level, see these sources, among others, to stay in touch.

Graduate Listservs

The College of Graduate Studies has set up listservs for discussion of graduate issues in the university community. These listservs are also used to make announcements, forward emails about graduate issues, and distribute minutes and other documentation for graduate faculty and staff review.

Before you send a message to a listserv, you must first be a member of the listserv and the e-mail for you on the listserv must be current. If you have more than one email, the email for you on the listserv must be the one you will use to send messages to the group. Please remember that a message sent to one of these listservs is seen by the entire group. If you want a message to go to one person, then you must send it to that person’s individual email.

To send a message to a listserv, type the email of the listserv in the To area of the message.

To request changes to a listserv (change email, delete email, add new people, and so on), contact the listserv administrator as identified below.
