Student Advisory Committee
Prior to submitting a program of study, and no later than the end of the second academic semester, each student must form an advisory committee. The Graduate Director will serve as the advisor for all non-thesis students, two other committee members must be selected.
The department graduate program director, who will serve as the student's major advisor, will conduct a final confirmation of completing all degree requirements by reviewing and evaluating the student's coursework record.
MS Non-Thesis students are required to attend the SBES symposium each year but are not required to present a poster, oral presentation, or lightening talk.
