Graduate Advising

Advising in the School of Education is split between Faculty Advising and Academic Advising:

  • Faculty Advising - You are assigned a faculty advisor based on the graduate program of matriculation. Contact your faculty advisor to discuss program requirements, such as whether you will take an intensive exam, prepare a portfolio, etc.  You should also speak to your faculty advisor regarding questions you may have regarding individual course requirements or whether outside graduate course work is appropriate for your program.
  • Academic Advising - Academic advisors are professional staff in the Office of Academic and Student Services who can assist you with graduation requirements and documentation needed to earn your degree.

The School of Education Office of Academic and Student Services will help you:

  • Address your concerns and needs
  • Understand academic requirements and maintain your student record
  • Negotiate academic polices and processes
  • Serve as a center for student advocacy
  • Determine if you are ‘on track’ to graduate in your program
  • Administer the Child Health & Life Safety Exam
  • Provide credential file maintenance and coordinate certification for eligible students including fingerprinting, if you are in a teacher preparation program.
  • Provide important information to you via the AcadServ e-mail.
