TT faculty are required to advise undergraduate and graduate students on academic matters. Individual faculty members are responsible for providing academic counseling to undergraduate students assigned to them and to other undergraduate students who seek such advice, as needed.  MA student advising is conducted by the student’s MA Committee, in consultation with the graduate coordinator.  Ph.D. student advising is conducted initially by a student’s Ph.D. Committee and then by the student’s dissertation committee, also in consultation with the graduate coordinator.   In order to assist in student advising, TT faculty members should maintain current knowledge of University, College, and Department programs and requirements.
