Graduate Student Advising

Graduate students are assigned to a faculty advisor upon admission to the School of Public Health and Information Sciences. Faculty advisors provide guidance regarding course requirements, practice experience, research and dissertation development, funding opportunities and questions related to the program requirements.

Faculty Advisors – Students are provided the name and contact information for their assigned faculty advisor in their admission e-mail. Admitted students are encouraged to schedule a meeting with their faculty advisor early in their program and meet with their faculty advisor on a regular basis.

Signed Program Plan– During the initial advising appointment between a student and their faculty advisor, an academic program plan must be signed by both the faculty advisor and student. The signed program plan is then submitted to the Office of Student Services.
