The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies serves as an umbrella office to ensure consistency in graduate education policies and effectiveness. OGPS develops and reviews policies that apply to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Professional programs are under the oversight of the professional schools. OGPS also coordinates with the Graduate Council and the Office of Academic Affairs to supervise and provide guidance to graduate education programs and professional programs undergoing major changes. The office provides programming and advising for research based masters students, PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows to support them during their academic career at Tulane University and as they prepare for careers after their studies.
Typically graduate students in each school will report to their department or Dean's Office, especially in regards to signing up for classes, applying for graduation, or handing in their theses.

OISS assists Tulane’s international community with immigration, cultural adjustment, academic integration, professional growth, and personal support. OISS oversees orientation and arrival, regulatory compliance, immigration services, sponsor services and programming. The primary community served by OISS are international students in F and J status. We also welcome anyone who identifies as international (such as international students sponsored by Fulbright or dependents of people in other visa categories) to reach out to us so that we can be of support.
For academic support resources and other information, please make an appointment with one of our advisors or visit our website.
