What questions can Graduate School Ambassadors help me with? 

Graduate School Ambassadors can help answer general questions about student life, where to find housing, relocating to Washington, D.C., balancing academics and life, their academic and research experiences, opportunities to get involved with student organizations, research projects, and opportunities to take advantage of during your time at Howard. 

Graduate School Ambassadors can only share their personal experience. They cannot assist with admissions-related questions, including admissions decisions or statuses, receipt of application materials, and scholarships or funding. Specific questions about your application, funding opportunities, course registration, or academic program requirements should be directed to your intended program director of graduate study or advisor.  

If you have admissions-related questions or questions about the online application process, email the Howard University Main Office of Admissions (outside of the Graduate School) directly at
