Advisement of Students

Students then work with the assigned advisor to develop their DegreeWorks program of study and meet any admission requirements not initially met in order to be formally admitted to their program and proceed to candidacy. Students are informed by letter from the Office of Graduate Studies on the status of their admission (provisional or regular) and the name and phone number of their advisor.
