Graduate Studies provides new and current students with opportunities for success while completing their graduate coursework. The College's Associate Director of Engagement and Experience serves as a resource for all graduate students by advising, mentoring, and making referrals to other University offices. Students will meet with their academic adviser at least once per semester to review their academic progress, ensure adherence to curriculum requirements, and to assist with course registration. Course registration and obtaining a PIN number can only occur after meeting with an adviser.

Graduate Studies uses a platform called Compass, which is accessible via PirateNet, to schedule advising appointments and communicate with students about advising. Compass provides students with one central location to find the people and resources on campus to help them succeed.
