Student Support

The staff and faculty of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) work together to support GSAS students and to create community within the GSAS. From application to admission, enrollment, graduation, and beyond, we work closely to support students’ professional goals and well-being. Supports in the broader College environment are also available. Access Services provides students with disabilities a path to key accommodations to support their learning goals.

Some of the supports we offer are:

New Student Orientation

Before the start each Fall semester, the GSAS holds an orientation designed to welcome new students to the GSAS community.

Graduate Student Emergency Fund

Bryn Mawr College has access to funds to support graduate students who are experiencing financial hardship due to an unanticipated event. A student is typically eligible to receive funding once per academic year. These funds do not need to be repaid and are distributed on a case-by-case basis. More details on this fund and how to reply please visit the webpage for Graduate Student Emergency Fund.

Graduate Student Association

The mission of the GSA is to keep graduate students informed of College issues that affect them, to keep the College aware of these issues, and to encourage social and academic interactions among graduate students in different departments. Students are encouraged to attend all GSA events and if interested serve on the GSA executive committee or college committees.

Access Services

Bryn Mawr College welcomes the full participation of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of campus life. The Access Services office in Guild Hall provides support and reasonable accommodations for eligible students, employees, and guests with disabilities.

Health and Wellness Center

The Health and Wellness Center at Bryn Mawr College is available to all students with resources for health, mental health and wellness.
