Selection of Permanent Advisor
Newly admitted graduate students will be assigned a temporary advisor for the first semester, but they must select a degree option and a permanent advisor before registering for the second semester.
When considering a decision about a degree option and an advisor, the student should arrange to meet with several members of the graduate faculty during the first six weeks of study to discuss specific educational objectives. The student can use these meetings to become familiar with faculty interests and research projects currently in progress. The faculty member must agree (in writing) to serve as the student's advisor.
All students must pass a final examination. The final examination is to be conducted by the student's advisory committee and is taken after completing all thesis work.
