The Graduate School of Management sends the name and telephone number of an academic adviser to students in the letter of admission. Students are required to meet or talk with the adviser before their first registration for classes. The Graduate School of Management strongly recommends that students meet regularly with their adviser; advisers play an important role in the graduate students' course of study. Non-degree and temporary non-degree students must seek advising and permission numbers prior to registration. Students who register for course work without adviser approval assume full responsibility for their registration. Courses that do not satisfy the requirements of a plan of study are not applied toward the degree.

No classes may be attended for which students are not properly registered. Proper registration includes the payment of all tuition and fees.
