Director of Graduate Studies
The director of graduate studies is the central application, admissions, and advising source in the department. All new students must consult with the director to be advised regarding a supervising professor, if one has not been assigned at admission.

Annual Review of All Master’s and Doctoral Students
The Graduate Studies Committee (GSC) reviews all student files once a year. The review process, conducted by the GSC and the supervising professor, has two aims: 1) to advise students regarding the construction and development of their program of study, and 2) to address problems of incompletes; failing grades; or difficulties completing program requirements, course work, or theses. The GSC can shift students from one master’s option to another, will warn students if they are in jeopardy of being dismissed, and can set conditions for students to meet to avoid dismissal.

Waiver of a Requirement
Any waiver from a requirement must be requested in writing to the Director of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Studies Committee for decision. Requests must be supported in writing by the student’s supervising professor.
