IV. Advising Services
The Office of Graduate Studies offers assistance to and advocacy for graduate students as well as coordinating the academic and support services for all graduate students. If you have questions about advising, you can always come to the Graduate Studies Office. If we can’t answer your question, we can assist you in finding the appropriate resource.
Primary academic advising for each program of study will be made available to students through their program office. Academic advising is shared by the program coordinators, the faculty advisers, and staff members as appropriate. For further information, contact the program in which you have enrolled.
Additional advising for international students is available through the International Student Services Office. Trained counselors can help you with immigration, employment, and social questions, as well as dietary concerns.
