The Graduate Advisor will go over your program plan and give you advice about selecting courses, arranging for thesis supervision and planning your work for the year ahead. The Graduate Advisor must approve your program before it is registered with Graduate Studies. Any changes to an approved program require permission so it's good to establish contact early and maintain it during your time as a student. The Graduate Advisor is there to assist you through the program.
