About Advising

Questions related to academic advising, such as course planning, policies, deadlines, and other administrative matters, should be directed to the Graduate Program Coordinator, the MS Program Director, or the Director of Graduate Programs.

Upon enrollment, students in the MS and BAM programs will be assigned an Academic Advisor, Brielle DeMatteo. MS/BAM students are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester's registration period to discuss and plan course options for future semesters.

Students in the MA and PhD programs are encouraged to contact the Graduate Program Coordinator and the Director of Graduate Programs for academic advising.

All graduate students should regularly update their Program of Study to ensure timely degree progress. PhD students are required to submit a Program of Study form annually with their Student Activity Report.

Graduate students are encouraged to seek guidance from faculty about their academic and professional goals.
