Academic Advising

Upon admission into a specific graduate program, an academic advisor is assigned to a graduate student. Students are encouraged to maintain regular contact with their advisors on matters of academic planning and progress, during posted office hours or by appointment.

The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about educational plans that are consistent with University policies rests with the student. All students in the Education Department and the School of Nursing and Health Sciences are required to have a signature and/or electronic approval from their advisor, program director or the associate dean of graduate studies each time they register, regardless of the number of hours for which they intend to enroll.
