Graduate Administrative Assistant
Barbara Wachob

Graduate Advisors answer questions from applicants to the degree program they oversee. They assist applicants in the completion of their files, advocating for them in meetings of the admissions committee including the awarding of assistantship offers. Current students meet at least once a semester with their advisors to agree on courses to be taken, and to generate and fill out all required paperwork, including the Program of Study, to ensure timely progress toward completion of the degree and graduation. The graduate advisor is the first stop for students enrolled in the degree program.
