Advisors provide students with advice on degree requirements, course load and options, transfer questions and other general advising information. Students are encouraged to visit their academic advisor if they have any questions regarding their degree program.
Advisors strive to meet with each student requesting an appointment; however, please be aware of busy periods throughout the year that may result in a longer than normal wait time to meet with an advisor:
- The week before school starts
- The first week of school (add/drop period)
- Q-drop deadline
- Pre-registration period (last 6 weeks leading up to graduation)
Graduate advising is an administrative liaison for graduate students navigating the administrative requirements of graduate school from the admissions process to degree completion. Graduate advisors generally do not provide students with a list of courses to take though we can sometimes give a list of suggested courses. Students are always advised to review their course schedules with their chair or temporary faculty advisor.
