Graduate Student Resources

PhD in Human Development and Social Policy Claudia Hasse

This web page will provide you with a snapshot of important resource people, deadlines, academic timeline, and description of graduate school forms that you will need to complete during your enrollment at Northwestern.

HDSP Student Handbook

This student handbook details information about HDSP program requirements (including the core curriculum, trial research, course outline, and dissertation), arranged chronologically from what students should know before entering the program, through a hypothetical five-year course program, to what happens after students graduate. The appendices expand upon these topics with a list of professional conferences and fellowship opportunities, the annual Student Progress Report, and relevant courses outside of the department.

Funding

It is our policy to provide full tuition and academic year stipend for five years, contingent on satisfactory progress towards the degree. Stipend levels may vary year-to-year but will never fall below The GraduateSchool's (TGS) base stipend level (currently $1,975/month). Support may include fellowships, research assistantships, or graduate assistantships. For 2015-2016, the School of Education and Social Policy academic year stipend level is $2,481/month. Summer funding is available through The Graduate School, at the TGS base rate, and is contingent upon an approved proposal. In addition, as a graduate student at Northwestern, you are eligible to enroll in a health insurance plan that will receive 100 percent subsidization from The Graduate School.

Student Services Representatives

All graduate students have a student services representative through The Graduate School (TGS). Your student services representative can answer questions related to TGS: enrollment, degree deadline, residency, fellowships, teaching assistantships and paperwork that should be submitted for graduation. TGS recommends that student services inquiries be directed to gradservices@northwestern.edu.
