The Graduate School

The Graduate School is responsible for dissemination of information regarding Tuskegee University’s graduate programs, recruiting graduate students and monitoring their progress from admission through graduation. The staff of the Graduate School works closely with department heads, graduate program directors, and academic deans of units that offer graduate degrees, as well as the Registrar's Office.

Tuskegee University currently offers twenty (20) graduate programs  including four (4) at the doctorate level. All of our graduate programs are thesis/dissertation based with the exception of the Master of Science Program in Occupational Therapy. There are a few thesis based Master of Science Programs which also offer non-thesis based degrees. Please visit the links at the bottom of this page to learn the various services available through this office. The GRE, GMAT, and TOEFL has been waived only for the Academic Year 2020-2021.
