Advising
  • Do I directly contact my graduate program director?

    It is recommended that you contact your advisor when you are admitted to Graduate Studies; some programs have additional program admission requirements. Program Advisors can also help with which classes to take, as well as any specific questions about your program.

  • Who is my graduate advisor?

Registration
  • After I register, how do I save my schedule?

    Registered students must pay or make arrangements with the Student Accounts to pay tuition & fees by the “Pay by date” in Campus Connect to avoid having their schedule dropped. The instructions are below:

    • Login to Campus Connect
    • Move the cursor to “Student Information”
    • Click on “Review/Pay Account”
    • Select the term that you are enrolled to review your account
      • If you have a student loan
        • If the funds are posted on your account and you have a zero or credit balance, select “Save my Schedule” at the bottom of the page
    •  If you wish to pay in full
      • Select “Pay by Credit/Debit Card” at the bottom of the page
    • If you wish to create a payment plan (fall and spring only)
      • Select “Pay by E-Cashier/FACTS” at the bottom of the page

    After your schedule has been saved, you will get a message that says “Your schedule has been saved” or if a problem occurs, it will provide you with a telephone number to call.

  • As a graduate student, do I have to contact my advisor for registration?

  • Can I pre-register?

Students are allowed to pre-registered based on the number of hours they have completed, with upperclassmen pre-registering before underclassmen.
