Academic Advising

All formally admitted students are assigned an academic advisor at the time that they are notified of admission. After taking nine hours of graduate work, students may select a different advisor if they wish.

Matriculated students are responsible to meet with their advisor during their first semester to plan a program of study. We recommend that the advisor be consulted each semester about course selection and for information about changes in certification regulations.

Full-time students must carry nine or more credits per semester; part-time students carry three to six credits. The faculty advisor will discuss extending the normal academic load with students.

Information about certification requirements is available from the Certification Officer (Assistant Dean) and students are encourage to meet with the Certification Officer.

Advisement for non-matriculated students is by appointment with the Associate Dean. Contact the Dean's Office at (203) 254-4000, ext. 4250 or 2139 to make an appointment for advisement.
