Guidance for Graduate Students

Upon acceptance in a graduate program, a graduate student will come under the guidance of an advisor who is assigned by the program at the time of admission. A thesis, supervisory, or dissertation committee will be established by the student in consultation with the advisor in those programs in which a thesis or dissertation is required. Proper guidance of graduate students is of primary importance and a major responsibility of the graduate advisors, graduate program directors, coordinators, and the graduate faculty.
