Commencing in fall 2023, graduate programs will have the opportunity to become a Graduate Program of Excellence. Programs seeking to earn this distinction must be able to provide strong, compelling data and other examples as evidence of the program's excellence. Those programs earning the Graduate Programs of Excellence designation will receive a $7500 stipend to further student achievement and success. Therefore, programs are required to advance a budget plan as part of the application process to demonstrate how awarded funds will be used to advance student achievement and success.

Four criteria are used when reviewing a program for this designation:

  • Superior Graduate Education:  Program Rigor and Excellence
  • Program Accessibility and Flexibility in Program Delivery
  • Enrollment Management and Recruitment
  • Student Success and Support:  Health and Wellness Initiatives
