Graduate Advising

Welcome to the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD)! Our team of academic advisors is committed to helping you achieve your academic goals by providing you with consistent and accurate academic support.

What is academic advising in the CEHD?

Academic advising is an ongoing, educational partnership between you and an academic advisor. You can always count on your academic advisor to give you accurate and complete information about your degree requirements, and refer you to the appropriate source for information you need to be a successful student. There are two kinds of academic advisors in the CEHD: professional advisors and faculty advisors.

What is a professional advisor and what are their responsibilities?

Professional advisors are located in the EASS office (room 140), and provide accurate information concerning academic policies and procedures, deadlines, and degree requirements. Professional advisors teach you how to evaluate your progress toward degree requirements, and refer you to University services and programs to assist you with your academic, career, and personal development.

What is a faculty advisor and what are their responsibilities?

Depending on your chosen major, you may be assigned to a faculty advisor. A faculty advisor is an instructor or professor in your area of study, responsible for assisting you in the exploration of career opportunities related to your major, guidance in choosing appropriate internship/practicum/student teaching experiences, and support with sequencing courses in the major.
