Academic Advising

The purpose of advising is to offer student support, counsel, and advice regarding academic matters and personal issues related to the academic program. Selected faculty members are available for counseling on specific academic specializations and tasks. Students meet for a formal appointment with their advisor each quarter. Each faculty member has regularly scheduled office hours and is accessible to the student by appointment. For doctoral students, when work begins on the dissertation, the student’s primary advisor is the Dissertation Committee Chair.
