Current Students

Graduate students who are currently enrolled in Villanova's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will find information here on the many non-academic services and facilities available to graduate students as members of the university community, and on the Graduate Student Council, the main social organization for graduate students at Villanova.

While you are pursuing your degree, you can expand your career network through joining the SHRM Chapter and volunteering at local meetings of SHRM chapaters. You can also join our HRD Linked in group, or the University Linked in groups. Both the SHRM chapter and the Department  provide information through Twitter.

Students must contact advisors during the advisement period to discuss class registration. Advisement and registration dates can be found on the Graduate Academic Calendar.


Student Services

There are a wealth of support services available for graduate students. Please find quick links to textbook information, parking permits, Wildcard setup, as well as tuition payment information on the side. In addition, there are a variety of academic support services, health and wellness information, and ways to get involved listed in the additional support services link.



Students in the M.S. degree program are required to complete one, 120-hour paid internship. Gaining practical, on-the-job experience under the guidance of an experienced HR professional is a fundamental cornerstone of the degree program.



Graduation occurs three times throughout the year: May, September, and December. Students expecting to graduate must submit the online application through myNOVA by the deadline specified on the Graduate Academic Calendar (also specified on the Apply for Graduation link)
