International Students:  Meet with an advisor who specializes in international admissions.

Before you see an advisor, please complete the following steps:

  • Create a folder with important paperwork for advising and bring it to all your advising sessions. This includes copies of your transcripts, your printed DARS report, and anything else you think would be helpful for your advisor to view so that he/she can better assess your progress in the program. 
  • Create a draft of the courses you want to take, using the Bulletin as your guide to requirements. A tentative course schedule can be found at the Course Planning Guide website.
  • Write down all of your questions and bring them with you!
