KU Policy

Advising of graduate students is primarily conducted within the graduate programs by program staff members and the individual faculty members who act as mentors and advisers. Students are encouraged to work with the Director of Graduate Studies regarding course selections and individual program requirements to ensure that all program milestones are reached as expected by the program faculty and CLAS. The Director of Graduate Studies is also responsible for the regular assessment of students in the program and should be the one to address questions regarding a student’s progress toward the degree.

For more information regarding College policies and university degree requirements, contact Megan Wilson (meganwilson@ku.edu) or visit coga.ku.edu.
