Graduate Operations

Graduate studies is one of the fastest-growing areas at High Point University.  With master’s degree programs in Athletic Training, Business Administration, Communication, Education, and Physician Assistant Studies, and doctoral programs in Education, Pharmacy, and Physical Therapy, opportunities for advanced study abound.

The Office of Graduate Operations is the administrative center for High Point University’s various graduate programs and falls within the administrative umbrella of the Office of Research and Planning. Although academic advising and curricular guidance occurs within each graduate program, the Office of Graduate Operations can help students navigate many of the policy, procedure, and other administrative issues that may arise during the course of students’ tenure at HPU.  Examples of the services our office provides include:

  • Helping students register for courses;
  • Working with students on visa and other immigration issues;
  • Providing guidance on the submission of theses and dissertations;
  • Keeping students informed about important policy changes;
