The Glimpse into Graduate School Seminar Program is an initiative that provides current undergraduate students with the resources, programming, and support that are necessary to achieve their aspirations for graduate study. The goal of the program is to empower students to develop the confidence and skills necessary for a comfortable transition and success in competitive graduate programs. Selected participants will attend seminars and workshops and complete assignments that encompass a wide array of topics. Glimpse sessions are presented by administrators, faculty, staff, and graduate students of MU. Assignments for the Glimpse program will be communicated during the weekly sessions and also available via Canvas.
Students who miss no more than one Glimpse seminar session or assignment are eligible for an application fee waiver for graduate studies at the University of Missouri. Also, students who attend all Glimpse sessions and complete all required assignments will be eligible to receive a one-time refund of the cost of the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) General Test. This refund does not include any costs students may incur for General Subject tests, late fees, or test date change fees. In order to receive a refund for the GRE General Test, students must provide proof that the GRE test has been taken.
