Alumni Career Services

Alumni Career Services

Welcome to Alumni Career Services at University Career Services. Our staff of professionals are dedicated to assist you with a number of options to help you advance in your chosen career path. With the ever-developing economy, we understand the importance of connections and preparation to meet the changing times. We encourage you to view the list of options available for continuing your pursuit of your passion. We offer GSU Alumni two levels of service, Tiers I and II.

You are welcome to visit University Career Services at 66 Courtland Street, Atlanta, GA 30303, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are located on the 2nd Floor of the University Center, Room 260.

For either level of service, we must verify GSU Alumni status, for which a unique verification card will be issued. To do this, you must submit specific information regarding your GSU program of study using the UCS Alumni Career Services Inquiry Form. We do not mail verification cards – they must be picked up in person. We ask that you present this card each time a service is requested, along with a government-issued picture ID.

Note: UCS will provide Tier I and Tier II services to recent GSU graduates (alumni), up to one year out, at no fee. The Alumni Career Services program fee will be assessed after this one year “grace period.”  See below for details.

We look forward to seeing you!

There is no fee for Tier I services. Please complete the Inquiry Form and select Tier I, prior to visiting University Career Services. This way we can verify your Alumni status in advance and provide you with your Alumni Career Services card on your first visit, which will allow you to access to Tier I services.

Note:This service is best for those who do not wish to receive one-on-one assistance from a UCS staff person. Tier I does not include access to the online job board Panther Career Net, résumé reviews or career advising or counseling. If you need these services, we recommend Tier II.

If this determination occurs after the first 3 months and the user has already used services, a refund may not be provided. While not an exhaustive list, such referral/termination situations would typically arise when:
    a. A user has had three or more “no-shows” for scheduled appointments with staff (a “no show” is defined as missing a scheduled appointment without advance notification of at least 24 hours); and/or
    b. UCS determines that the user is not benefiting from the services provided by UCS;and/or
