The Graduate Student Success Center
Currently, the Graduate Student Success Center (GSSC) is operating virtually. Please visit our Graduate Writing Studio and Graduate Statistics Studio online. Here you will find useful resources related to your graduate classes. If you would like to meet with a Writing Consultant or a Statistics Consultant, please schedule an appointment through our online booking system or email us at FresnoStateGSC@gmail.com
Once we can all return to campus, please remember to visit and utilize our physical space on campus found on the second floor of the Henry Madden Library (Room 2119). This 1,100 square foot space is restricted to Fresno State grad students and access is via a key swipe using your Fresno State ID card. Along with the Writing Studio and the Stats Studio, you will find workstations, individual study rooms, a collaboration table, and laptop tables with power strips. The areas (tables, study rooms, workstations) of the center are available for your use, and do not require a reservation.

The cost of attending graduate school seems to be getting higher and higher. Thankfully, we can help you find ways to make your graduate experience more affordable. Fresno State offers several different financial opportunities through our division and other departments across campus; these range from financial aid to scholarships, assistantships, teaching associateships, and more. However, they are competitive, which is why it is very important to know your deadlines and apply early. Please use the tabs to the left to navigate through our various funding opportunities.
