Graduate Program Advising

Our graduate advisers are here to help guide you through the graduate school experience and should be the first people you turn to for questions about your plan of study, course registration, or any issues that come up while you are completing your degree. They can help you decide which course load is best for you (full-time, part-time, dual degree) and make sure you meet  prerequisite requirements. They also work with students interested in graduate assistantships, certificate programs, career placement, or study abroad.

Only advisers can can override course restrictions, prerequisites, and course substitutions. If you have difficulty with your course registration, please email your adviser your name, student ID number (700# or 800#), and what issue you are having. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your adviser if you have a question!
