First-Year Advising

The Director of the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program serves as the graduate advisor for all incoming students. The Director will provide advising for a maximum of three semesters. As soon as possible, but no later than the end of the third semester, each student will seek a graduate advisor and select an advisory committee. The Director provides advice and guidance in this process. When the committee is formed, advising duties transfer to the graduate advisor.
