Graduate Academic Advising

Section 1


When admitted, students are paired with an academic and research advisor.  Many times one faculty member will fill both roles.  Your academic advisor will work with you to create a coursework plan customized to your interests and goals.  Research advisors help you cultivate your research and writing. 

The staff of the Graduate Studies Office is here to support our students from the application process through graduation.  We may assist with questions about such topics as:

  • Student Record Updates – Requirements, Evaluations, Awards, etc.
  • Fellowships and Assistantships
  • Registration Processing – Late Registration, Audit, Credit/No Credit, Restriction Lifts, PSYC 590/599 Course Reference Number (CRN) Distribution, etc.
  • Graduate College Deadlines and Forms
  • Thesis/Dissertation Support – Committee Approval, Form Preparation, Format Compliance

This list is not all inclusive and we are happy to help whenever possible.  Collaborating with other campus units (Graduate College, Academic Human Resources, etc.), we assist our students through each stage of their academic career.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Graduate Spotlight

Julianne GriffithJulianne Griffith

Congratulations to Julianne Griffith! She's been awarded an NSF fellowship for her research she describes below. Julianne is a Graduate Student in the Clinical/Community program area working with Benjamin Hankin. Research Summary: My research is interested in examining the social context of emotional development in adolescence, particularly as it relates to adolescent depression. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the ways in which positive emotions emerge and function in the context of close interpersonal relationships. For my NSF project, I aim to use experience sampling methods (ESM) to examine capitalization processes in parent-adolescent dyads, with the ultimate goal of learning more about how positive emotions are experienced and regulated in adolescents’ daily life.
