Graduate Student Advising is provided by a faculty advisor in the student’s field of study who is assigned to each student on acceptance into the program. Associate Dean and Director of Graduate business programs function as secondary advisors to every student, and additional assistance is provided on an as-needed basis by Administrative Assistant to the Associate Dean and Dean of the Godbold School of Business.
First-semester students are registered by the Graduate Admissions office or the Graduate School of Business. Each semester, continuing graduate business students are responsible for their own registration for courses after receiving an Advisement and Registration email with information for the next semester. In addition, each faculty advisor emails student advisees with contact information and times available for advising. Faculty advisors and the program director offer continuous support and review of a student’s study plan. Faculty are available in person, by email, phone, Webex, Skype, Face Time, etc. Each semester, all graduate students receive a Continuing Student email which alerts them to upcoming dates of importance (e.g., drop/add and withdrawal deadlines) and reminds them of the basic information communicated in their New Student Orientation Letter.
