Megan Petsa

Director of Graduate Student Administration

As the Director of Graduate Student Administration, Megan specializes in graduate assistantships, voluntary separations, graduate enrollment exceptions, and departmental stewardship. Megan supports Graduate Assistants (GAs, which includes both RAs and TAs), department staff, and GA supervisors by providing resources and trainings related to GA processes, troubleshooting issues, and providing guidance on policies and procedures. Megan directly advises students who are considering voluntarily separating from the university through an academic leave of absence or exit on the financial and academic implications of canceling enrollment or withdrawing from the semester, as well as reviews dean-level enrollment exceptions for grads, such as late add/drops and degree time limit extensions, and coordinates the dismissal process. Megan also leads The Graduate School’s departmental stewardship efforts, including sharing large-scale communications on grad-related policies and procedures, reports on graduate enrollment and GA eligibility, and Timely Topics, a series of professional development opportunities for those who support and advise graduate students. Megan has been a staff member at UConn since 2012 and joined The Graduate School in 2018. She holds a B.A. in History and a M.A. in Adult Learning from UConn.
