Academic Advising

Advisement begins with the admissions process as prospective students are given materials and counseled on the degree options, contents, and requirements. During the student's first semester, a faculty academic advisor is assigned to each student. At various times during the Core students will receive special group advisement on registration procedures or on field education preparation procedures and placements. Additionally, the coordinator of academic planning is available to meet with students as needed to assist them in creating semester-by-semester completion plans; this is especially recommended as students near the end of the Core and are preparing to begin the post-Core semesters.

Faculty advisors assist students in developing a program of study. This program of study includes their electives (M.A.) and concentrations (M.Div.). It is the responsibility of graduate students to contact their faculty advisors to arrange meetings concerning program planning. Registration information is communicated to all enrolled students well in advance of each new semester via the NEwSPOINT newsletter which is sent to the student's campus email account.

In addition to academic planning, the advisor provides support to students concerning other issues such as personal problems, difficulties with other faculty members, grievance issues, etc. The faculty advisor can also assist students in developing ideas for his or her research project (M.A.).

D.Min. students are assigned advisors who will assist them in future course selection and normally serve as chair of the dissertation committee. This occurs at the conclusion of their first semester.
