1.4 Advisors

Students are initially assigned Advisors by the Director of Graduate Studies before beginning their first semester of work. Before the Candidacy Examination, students may change Advisors by submitting a written request to the Director of Graduate Studies and obtaining the written consent of the faculty member willing to serve as the student’s Advisor of record.  The student’s Advisor will, at appropriate times, serve as director of the student’s Candidacy Examination Committee, of the Dissertation Prospectus Examination Committee, and of the Dissertation Committee.  See Sec.2.5, Sec.2.6, and Sec.2.7 for information about the procedures for constituting each of these committees.
