Advising and Enrolling in Courses
- Master's Students
When admitted, each M.S. graduate student is assigned a graduate faculty advisor who will advise the student about the courses to take depending on the program, interests, time and course availability. The advisor will also monitor the student’s progress towards the degree. The advisor must be consulted prior to registration each semester. The advisor is listed in MyView (see the guide below for more info) - new students before getting an advisor listed are advised by the appropriate program director as listed one the specific program page (M.S. Computer Science or Cybersecurity).
