Advising

Download requirements

The link on this page connects you with an online, fillable advising form. It will be important that you (1) understand the courses that are required; (2) meet with your advisor to determine if you have any courses that you are able to transfer into the program; (3) create an academic plan that maps the coursework by semester, and (4) identifies the program options that you intend to pursue. Be sure to review the form before meeting with your advisor so your plan completely addresses your context and needs. Best wishes for an exciting and useful learning experience.

Graduate students typically seek or are assigned an advisor upon entrance to the program. See the Faculty section for a listing of faculty members.
