Academic Advising & Registration Information

Back to the Guide

Academic Advising: The Graduate Program Director assigns an initial faculty "academic advisor" to each new student as he or she enters the program. Your academic advisor will assist you in planning your schedule for the upcoming year. You should discuss course requirements with your academic advisor before you register each quarter. (New students: you need to contact your advisor before choosing your course schedule. This can be done before you arrive or during orientation week.)

Your academic advisor will work with you until your thesis/dissertation advisor is chosen. If you are working towards a master’s degree, you will choose a thesis advisor typically after your first year. If you are going for a Ph.D., you will choose a dissertation advisor sometime in your third year.
