Blackboard/Online Community

  • Overview

    We are pleased to provide a virtual community for SHSU graduate students, especially our online and distance learners. The community allows you to interact with the Graduate School staff, peer groups, and other campus personnel. You can also find news, updates, and event information.

Summer Support

  • Summer Events

    Things are (a bit) slower during the summer months. If you strive to make great progress on those assignments you’ve been meaning to devote more time to, summer support days are where you need to be. Writing specialists, tutors, and academic coaches are available for one-on-one aid. We also partake in whole-group wellness check-ins.
