Advising Services

Advising in the College of Education is centralized for undergraduate students in the Division of Academic Services and decentralized for graduate students in the four academic divisions of the college: 1) Administrative and Organization Studies, 2) Kinesiology, Health and Sport Studies, 3) Theoretical and Behavioral Foundations, and 4) Teacher Education. Undergraduate students have professional advisors and graduate students are advised by faculty in the student’s program. Every student admitted to the College of Education is assigned an advisor.

Pre-Admission Graduate Advising

Academic Services provides pre-admission advising to students interested in graduate programs. Graduate advisors provide guidance with program selection, the satisfaction of admission requirements and completion of the graduate admission application.
