Congratulations and welcome to Syracuse!
Your faculty advisor is an instructor or professor in the School of Education, and often in your program or department, assigned to you when you matriculate. You will also have an academic advisor in the Office of Academic and Student Services. Together, they will assist you with developing a program of study, getting you registered, and providing personal and professional support.
Note: if you have not already, make sure you send back your Intent to Register (ITR) form with the blue envelope. This officially matriculates you into Syracuse, and you cannot register for courses until you are matriculated.
Your department or degree program will hold an orientation for new (and sometimes returning) graduate students. These are usually mandatory; your department will send you more information. Syracuse Welcome and the School of Education also holds events for graduate students to network and learn more about your new Orange home.
