Welcome to PBS Graduate Academic Services!
This website is designed to provide information for graduate students in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences (PBS, also abbreviated as PSY) at Indiana University, Bloomington. PBS, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the University Graduate School have requirements that must be met by every student in order to complete their PhD. Many of these requirements involve forms that must be completed at various stages along the way. Needless to say, it can be quite confusing to try to keep track of everything. Hopefully, the resources provided on this website will help clarify and demystify the whole process.
It goes without saying that this is all a work in progress. Please let us know if you have suggestions or comments that will help make this web resource as useful as possible.

Caveat Regarding Design & Style Guide Concerns: This site is intended as an internal tool for current graduate students in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Its format is selected primarily for ease of access by and ability for academic services staff to make prompt updates to the information.
