All graduate students will be assigned a faculty advisor. Students on the thesis or PhD track – your advisor will be the faculty member you will be working with.
All other students will be assigned a temporary faculty advisor in late August or early September. You will be notified by email when your faculty advisor has been determined. These assignments are temporary and it is possible to change your advisor after you have a chance to get to know the faculty. If you want to change your advisor, be sure to confirm with that faculty member and notify the Graduate Advising Office of the change so we can update our records.
You should plan to meet with your faculty advisor between Sept. 16 and the start of the quarter to go over your program plan for the year. We are in the process of updating the program plans for 2016, and will be sending those out to you soon.
