Graduate Program Advisement

The director of each graduate program assigns an academic advisor for all students enrolled in that program. The advisor maintains a student record and advisement folder used to plan a student's program and track progress. However, all official student records are maintained in the registrar's office and can be reviewed by students upon 24-hour notice.

Students register for courses with the help of their assigned academic advisors. The process of registering for courses requires the completion of a course registration form or students may register online, with permission from their advisor. Students who use the deferred payment plan will be billed 20 percent of the tuition prior to the start of classes. Students who utilize employer reimbursement programs are required to submit a letter from their employers annually prior to registration.
