Academic Advisement...The Pathway to Success

Academic advising is an on-going relationship and a collaborative process between the advisor and advisee that will help students identify and reach their academic objectives. Graduate and transfer students should contact their advisor to ensure their are on track for graduation. Academic advising is the shared responsibility of faculty, staff and students. Following approval of the student for admission, the first step should be to contact the academic advisor for advisement and completion of the Program of Study. This document should be submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies within the first semester of enrollment. Students should maintain a copy of this form to ensure they are following their plan of study during each advisement session. Any changes in curriculum requirements must be approved by the advisee's advisor and chairperson.
