The King’s College Graduate Division is a “one-stop shop” for all graduate students (the only exception is for students in the Physician Assistant program). The Graduate Division manages all aspects of graduate education at King’s, including recruitment, inquiries, admission, registration and billing.
Consistent with the mission of King’s College, the Graduate Division offers hands-on, personalized attention to all visitors, contributing to a caring and nurturing community. In particular, the Graduate Division is dedicated to helping students interested in pursuing master’s degrees in either education or health care administration at King’s (the College offers four master’s programs and five certificate/endorsement programs). The Division also offers professional development courses for teachers who need credits towards their teaching certificates.
The Graduate Division recruits prospective students from within the College, as well as from the general community. The Division coordinates all graduate-related activity (graduate honor society, symposiums, etc.), publishes graduate course offerings online and on Datatel, and revises and updates the graduate catalog. Other behind-the-scenes services include reserving classrooms for all graduate classes and working with IITS to assign network accounts for graduate students. The Division tracks each student’s academic progress—including withdrawals and readmissions—from the time he or she enrolls through graduation. The Division distributes course evaluations to all graduate instructors and shares the computer-tabulated results at the end of each semester.
Briget Ford, coordinator of graduate programs, manages the Graduate Division. She coordinates services for all graduate students. She also works with program directors to schedule courses, assigns rooms and publish schedules. Other responsibilities include overseeing graduate-related operations on nights and weekends and when the College is closed due to inclement weather.
Maria Glenn, the Graduate Division office manager, is the first point-of-contact for anyone contacting the Division. She greets student walk-ins and responds to phone calls and e-mail requests for assistance. Maria also sends information to prospective students, creates and maintains files for new applicants, and processes all registrations, adds/drops and withdrawals. Maria also is responsible for day-to-day office operations of the Division.
The Graduate Division welcomes walk-in visitors. The office is located at 107 North Franklin Street (former location of the Financial Aid office). Visit the Graduate Division online.
