Frequently Asked Questions
DiCE stands for the Graduate Diversity Campus Experience. It is a recruitment weekend founded by the Black Graduate and Professional Student Association (BGPSA) at Auburn University in 2014 under the leadership of then BGPSA President, April Scott. DiCE was developed to help prospective students better understand the requirements for graduate and professional studies and help them become more competitive candidates for their programs of interest.
DiCE is held every Fall on the campus of Auburn University. Specific dates should be updated on the DiCE application page.
DiCE is a fully-funded weekend for fellows. Meals and lodging are covered by the program. However, DiCE Fellows are responsible for the cost of their travel to and from Auburn, AL. If you are in need of special assistance or accommodations, DiCE fellows can communicate those needs after being accepted into the program.
Yes. DiCE fellows can currently be students in a master’s or professional program, as long as they are interested in pursuing further graduate education. DiCE fellows should be post-baccalaureate or within two years of a bachelor’s degree and interested in a graduate or professional degree.
No. The DiCE weekend and application review can only be tailored to one program at Auburn University. Though fellows may be interested in more than one program because it fits their interest, applicants are asked to choose one program of interest for the DiCE program. Ultimately, DiCE fellows can apply to any program(s) they would like after participating in the DiCE program.
No. Acceptance as a DiCE Fellow does not guarantee acceptance into an Auburn University graduate or professional program. DiCE, however, is a great opportunity for fellows to meet key faculty and administrators in their department and at Auburn University, in addition to improving their graduate or professional school application materials.

No. DiCE application materials are strictly used to decide your acceptance into the DiCE program. During the DiCE Program fellows will be improving their application materials to be submitted to their programs of interest in the graduate and professional school application process.
