Graduate Advising

Getting Started as a Graduate Student

All graduate students at FAU are advised by faculty or staff in the student’s home department/degree program. See the list below and contact the person related to your chosen degree program. Students work with their advisor(s) to create and submit a formal Plan of Study to the Graduate College’s Degree Completion office no later than half-way through their required coursework. Students and their advisor will continue to work together to revise and finalize their Plan of Study prior to the beginning of the term in which they intend to graduate.
