Coursework MS Advisor

The GRC Chair assists in identifying an appropriate interim (temporary) coursework advisor for all entering MS students. Entering students prepare their fall-semester course schedules in consultation with their temporary advisor during orientation before the start of the first semester. By the end of the 7th week of their first semester, a student should have identified an appropriate advisor with whom a degree schedule can be created that satisfies all degree requirements and meets the student’s needs. Students may register for classes after consultation with their advisor, and the Departmental Advisor form must be submitted to the Graduate Program Assistant. A student on the coursework path typically takes 3 to 4 courses per semester.
