    Dean Gladis Kersaint welcomes your questions, ideas, and comments regarding the Neag School. Please submit your query at; selected questions and answers will be published in Neag School News. 


    Q: Why do senior IB/M students have to pay an application fee for the Graduate school if we've been accepted since our sophomore year? We already have enough to pay for with no help from Neag. 

    A: This question was referred to Neag School Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Joseph Madaus, who supplied the following response:  

    The fee that is charged is determined by, and collected by, UConn’s Graduate School, not the Neag School. Unfortunately, the Graduate School does not waive this fee for undergraduates at UConn, including IB/M seniors, when they apply to the Graduate School.
