Upon entrance to the graduate program, each student is assigned a temporary advisor to facilitate the student's progress through the program. Initial assignment or choice of a temporary advisor in no way obligates the student to select the temporary advisor as his/her program advisor or to include the temporary advisor as a committee member. Likewise, the temporary advisor has no obligation to serve on the studentʻs committee. The system of temporary advisors is merely a way of identifying a specific faculty member the student can call upon for advice. The temporary advisor can be changed at any time.
There is a $440 per semester fee for all students.
