Graduate Advising

All degree-seeking students enrolled in the Department of Chemistry are expected to meet with the Graduate Advisor/Coordinator for purposes of arranging class schedules, and for setting up a Plan of Study for the next year. This process will help assure that you have the needed prerequisites, approval for cognate courses, and that the courses you want to take in future terms will be available in those terms. Normally, a conference should be arranged just before the Priority Registration period in advance of the semester or summer term in which the student expects to enroll. Individuals who live a considerable distance from campus, and for whom this requirement is more than an inconvenience, should make special arrangements by e-mail or phone.
