Academic advising is a critical part of a student’s experience in the graduate program. New students are assigned faculty advisors and are welcome to subsequently change advisors as they fine-tune their academic and career objectives. Advising covers substantive questions in the student’s field of study as well as long-term academic and career planning. Students are strongly urged to speak to an advisor before registering for courses each semester.
All graduate students are assigned a peer mentor from the start of their program. Mentors provide incoming students with solid first connections to the graduate student community and department culture.
