Macdonald Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies

The Team at MacOGS

Graduate students in our Faculty are served administratively through their unit Graduate Program Director (GPD) and the Macdonald Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (MacOGS). Your GPD is a member of the academic staff and can assist you on program-related questions. MacOGS provides support, advice and assistance on all things administrative. The majority of your requirements can be handled through MacOGS, however, some issues may need to be directed through Service Point on the downtown campus.

If you have a question, a concern, or just want to introduce yourself, reach out to our friendly Graduate Program Coordinators!
