Graduate Program Advising

The Graduate Programs advising staff assists students in any of the in person, or online master's degree programs. Our graduate advisors are here to help guide you through the graduate school experience and should be the first person 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 the prerequisite requirements. They also work with students interested in graduate assistantships, certificate programs, career placement or study abroad. 

Advisors are the only ones who can override course restrictions, prerequisites, and course substitutions. Graduate students who experience difficulty with registration should send an email to their advisor and include their name, student ID number (700# or 800#), and what issue they are having or error message they are receiving. Our advisers and the programs they work with are listed below. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your advisor if you have a question!
