The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) oversees the student experience at the GSD. This includes admissions procedures, financial aid, course registration, career development, student life, student accommodations, and Title IX resources. We also assist prospective students, and host orientation and commencement events. The OSA is the one-stop shop for anything that impacts students at the GSD.

If you would like to schedule a time to meet with someone from the OSA, please do so by visiting our online booking page.
