Located in SIS 250, SIS Graduate Academic Advising is here to help you make the most of your SIS experience by providing information, answering questions, and making referrals to School and University partners dedicated to your academic and professional success.
Students are assigned to advisors by academic program as outlined below. Students can meet with their advisors in two different ways – during Express Advising or via appointment.
Appointments take place during the non-registration periods of the semester. Appointments allow for more substantial advising conversations than Express Advising. They are 30 minutes in length and are scheduled at least one day in advance. Appointments are available in-person or via Phone or Skype for your convenience.
Appointments resume for all advisors starting Monday, March 31. Advisors will begin meeting with new incoming students for fall 2014 on April 8. In order to schedule an appointment, please call the Graduate Advising Office at 202-885-1690 or visit the front desk in SIS 250.
Express Advising takes place during “crunch times,” that is during Add/Drop at the beginning of the semester and Advance Registration in the middle of the semester. Express Advising meetings are scheduled same-day and last no more than 15 minutes in length (many are often shorter). Phone in meetings may be available during Express Advising and can be scheduled in advance by calling the Graduate Advising office.
For general graduate advising information, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Graduate Advising Office (if you e-mail, please be sure to include a phone number).
