Grad Policies: Temporary Advisors
Every incoming graduate student in the department without a Faculty Advisor is assigned a Temporary Faculty Advisor. Your temporary advisor provides advice about courses and degree requirements, helping you design a tentative plan of study for your degree. Your Temporary Advisor will also offer advice on finding a Faculty Advisor, providing all the necessary signatures until you find one.
If, for any reason, you would like to change your Temporary Advisor, see your staff Graduate Advisor.
