Your academic advisor is an important resource—a person who will assist you with creating your program of study, clarifying programmatic policies and procedures, coordinating and collaborating with you on research, and eventually assisting you with career decisions. You are strongly encouraged to meet with your advisor prior to beginning your coursework and throughout your program.

Graduate program advising is conducted at several locations throughout New Hampshire, in addition to the Plymouth campus. A list of advising locations and directions are listed below.

General and Program-Specific Advising

Your first advising session is typically a general intake session, during which an advisor will discuss with you your plans for graduate study. Program-specific advising with the program coordinator occurs when you have selected a degree program. You may schedule an appointment for general advising, including advising about the application process, by calling (603) 535-2636 or (800) FOR-GRAD. To schedule an appointment for program-specific advising, please e-mail the appropriate individual from the list below.
