Grad Advising

Info

Graduate students are assigned a full-time faculty member as their advisor. Students meet with their advisor at least once every semester in advance of registration to review their progress in the architecture program and to plan their schedule for upcoming semesters. Faculty advisors can also assist students by providing general career advice, creating networking opportunities, and helping to prepare students for careers after graduate school.

 

Incoming graduate students are encouraged to work directly with the Architecture Program Director as they transition into their program and select courses for their first semester.

 

Advising Process:

Graduate advising takes place in the fall and spring semesters prior to registration. It is the responsibility of graduate students to meet with their faculty advisors to plan out the upcoming academic year. Students must make an appointment to meet with their advisor during regularly scheduled office hours. Prior to the meeting, students must fill out the appropriate Advising and Course Registration Worksheet for their degree path. Download the appropriate worksheet for your curricular path from the attachments below. Make sure that you download and read the appropriate "Advising Cycle" document, which contains upcoming course offerings. A list of current advisor/advisee assignments is kept in the Architecture Program office. See the Architecture Program Administrative Assistant to find your advisor.
