Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The GEAR UP for Graduate Studies program is designed to give participants an opportunity to review and reflect on their academic practices in preparation for a graduate-level course of study.

Whether you are returning to academic study after some years away, or just want a little extra preparation, GEAR UP can help put you on track for success.

The information contained in the program is based on research into both mature learners’ needs and best practices for improved learning in online, onsite and blended environments. It also draws on the expertise of our learning support professionals who have many years of experience working with students to help them improve their critical thinking and academic writing skills.
