Graduate Advising

  • Newly admitted students:
    • You're advised during first semester of enrollment by an initial faculty advisor but must choose a principal faculty advisor by the end of your first semester and inform the Director of Graduate Studies of your selection by completing the Advisor/Committee Agreement Form.
  • Each year, you must develop a plan of study for your degree in consultation with your advisor.
    • A statement of this plan, and any subsequent significant revisions, must be submitted to the Graduate Studies Committee for review every January by completing and updating the Graduate Student Plan of Study.
