Graduate handbook

It is your responsibility to know your program’s policies outlined in your handbook and in the graduate college handbook.

Graduate student lounge

All Ivy College of Business graduate students have access to the Tahira and Labh Hira Graduate Student Lounge. The lounge is located in room 2141 Gerdin and can be accessed using your ISU card. Just click your ISU card on the dark grey box near the door, and you are in. The lounge is a great place to meet for group projects, work on individual assignments, eat a meal, or grab a quick nap between classes.

The lounge includes:

  • Tables, chairs, and a couch.
  • Microwave.
  • Coffee maker.
  • Refrigerator and freezer (label your food and drink with your name. Only take other items if they are labeled for everyone to have).

Printing locations and printing credits

  • Ivy College of Business graduate students can print in the graduate lounge (2141 Gerdin) for free.
  • You can print to campus printers (like those in Parks Library) using a system called PaperCut. Every student is allotted at least 500 printing credits at the beginning of each semester to use with PaperCut. Different colleges, departments, or programs may add additional credits, so you may receive more than 500. If you need more printing credits than your semester allotment, extra credits can be charged to your U-Bill at a rate of $0.01 per printing credit ($1.00 minimum). Printing costs vary by printer and ink type.
  • You can also print using a personal computer (or other device) to campus printer. Install the required app using these instructions.
