The unit director or another faculty member will be appointed by the program director to serve as the student’s academic advisor throughout their course of study at the Bouvé graduate school.

The advisor will assist the student in understanding program requirements and in defining career goals and objectives of graduate work. The advisor will also monitor the student’s progress toward successful completion of the degree.

Student Advisement Responsibilities

Students share responsibility with their advisor for successful matriculation and progression in their graduate program. In many programs, students are required to make appointments for academic advisement at least twice a year and must regularly update their curriculum plan with their advisor. The curriculum plan is kept on file in the respective program’s office. Both student and advisor retain a copy of the curriculum plan. Students must contact their academic advisor prior to making changes to their curriculum plan and must seek assistance regarding academic issues in a timely manner.
