Academic Support Services Office

The Office of Academic Support Services is a unit of the Graduate School that provides academic services and programs designed to assist students in their pursuit of academic excellence at Alabama A&M University. These services and programs have been developed and implemented to impact student retention and degree completion. 


The Academic Support Services Office is located in room 213 of Patton Hall, Monday-Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. The office works closely with you and your department on services such as: graduate school orientation, registration procedures, student academic goals and success workshops, degree evaluation, probation, dismissals and appeals, international graduate student advisement, and graduation clearance. Although many of your questions can be answered by your departmental graduate adviser or chairperson, the Graduate School student services staff is available by appointments, or on a walk-in basis, to advise you on graduate school matters of concern.
