For Students/Alumni Considering Graduate or Professional School
Welcome to Graduate and Professional School Advising. We provide services for Penn students and alumni who are interested in graduate or professional school of any kind. We have organized our information into three categories: Health Professions School; Law School; Graduate and other Professional School. We have compiled here a great deal of information for those exploring or applying to such programs. We also encourage you, however, to meet with an advisor and to take advantage of all the services and resources available to you.

Besides guides to schools, directories of scholarships, fellowships and grants and admissions test study materials, the graduate/professional school section offers books that offer advice on applying, writing admissions essays and exploring potential fields of study. During the regular school year, the library is open 9am to 6pm (Monday through Wednesday) and 9am to 5pm (Thursday and Friday). Click here to visit the Library section of this website.
Graduate/Undergraduate Mentoring Program
Penn undergraduates interested in almost any graduate or professional field can benefit from this mentoring program offered by the Graduate Student Center, which matches those interested with current graduate or professional students at Penn who have volunteered their time. The Mentoring Program also offers panel discussions featuring current graduate or professional students. For more information, and to sign up, click here.
