Each graduate student is assigned a faculty adviser upon admission to a graduate program. Faculty advisers can provide students with assistance in developing a Plan of Study and selecting appropriate graduate courses that adhere to program curriculum, as well as discussing career options and alternatives after graduation. It is the responsibility of the graduate student to comply with the policies, procedures and degree requirements published in the Graduate Catalog.  If a student has concerns with regard to working with their assigned advisor at the graduate level, they are to contact the department chair.
