Advisement

The Graduate Director conducts an initial advisement session with each incoming graduate student prior to the start of the graduate program.   All transcripts for incoming students will be reviewed and a complete audit will be conducted indicating whether or not the prerequisite course requirements have been met.  The Graduate Director will discuss the audit with the student and develop a curriculum plan for them.  The curriculum plan specifies the courses that each student will take and the semester in which they will take them. Sample curriculum plans are as follows:
