Current Students FAQs

Who can I speak to for academic advising?

Your Graduate Coordinator will serve as your academic advisor. Please see our Graduate Coordinator contact list.

How do I register for Commencement?

The Office of Graduate Studies will open commencement registration for students only after eligibility is confirmed by the program coordinator. To make this process as seamless as possible, the Office of Graduate Studies will email lists of potentially eligible graduate students to program coordinators. Once confirmed, the student will be allowed to register. Please be aware that this process takes time and your commencement registration will be opened as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience.

Please file a Grad Check to begin this process. Once your Graduate Coordinator has determined that you are eligible, you can register for commencement.
