Review the university-wide graduate program policies found in the graduate school catalog.


When a faculty member goes on sabbatical or is otherwise absent for part or all of the academic year, the academic program coordinator will assume advising responsibilities in their absence unless alternate arrangements have been made. In the case of certain specialized graduate certificate (GC) programs where mentors are used, no academic advisor will be assigned. Refer to the graduate program policy on advising for more information.

Class participation and absences

Students should be aware of the importance of regular class attendance (whether in person or online). Being absent for more than one class leads to a student missing a large portion of the class content. In addition to consistent class attendance, students should make every effort to arrive to class on time out of respect for the learning process, fellow students and faculty. Refer to the graduate program policy on “Class Attendance” for related advising for more information.
