Abstract or Summary
  • The graduate student experience varies for each individual. While some graduate students decide to continue school after being away from some time, others continue with their studies immediately following the completion of their Bachelor's degree. This decision to continue one's education can be difficult and may require further assistance from the student's peers, faculty members, and student services entities. While the undergraduate student transition has been studied extensively, the graduate student transition has not been studied in as much depth. It was the intent of the researchers conducting this study to research the graduate student experience as it pertains to the graduate student transition at Oregon State University. This research was conducted using a web-based survey which was sent to academic department heads with a letter of recommendation from the Dean of the Graduate School asking them to forward this survey onto their graduate student list-serves. The survey asked students a variety of questions about their overall experience, their relationship with their major professor, their satisfaction levels with services available to them, and also included a few open-ended questions that allowed students to expand on their comments. Approximately 12.6% of the students who received the survey responded and there was about a 5.8% response rate of the entire graduate student population. Although there was a wealth of information gained from the responses, no statistical analysis was conducted nor was a statistical significance determined. The results indicated that a majority of students in most cases were either satisfied or very satisfied with their experiences at Oregon State University.
