Degree Students. The graduate advisory program aims to help the student plan a program of study that will improve professional competence and maintain a close liaison between the student and the College. Each graduate program has a departmental program director or coordinator.
Upon admission, each degree student is provided with access to Degree Works which outlines specific program requirements. Students should contact their advisor immediately to arrange a meeting to review their program degree requirements. After the advisement session, the advisor will notify the Office of Graduate Studies of any transfer credits and/or course substitutions. The Graduate Office will make approved adjustments within Degree Works and provide the student with an updated record. At this time, the advisor also notifies the Office of Graduate Studies that the student is eligible to register for courses, which will allow the student to register on-line at my.oneonta.edu.
Subsequent changes to the student’s program of study must be reported to the Office of Graduate Studies. It is important for students to examine their degree requirements in Degree Works to ensure that it reflects any and all changes agreed to by student and advisor. For questions regarding Degree Works, students should contact the Office of Graduate Studies.
Students are responsible for knowing all degree requirements as stated in Degree Works and should direct any questions to their advisor. If there are perceived discrepancies, they should be brought to the attention of the Office of Graduate Studies immediately.
The student is responsible for being familiar with policies and procedures for fulfilling all degree requirements.
Graduate students may request a change of academic advisor by contacting the program director and sending a written request to the Graduate Ofﬁce. The Graduate Ofﬁce will notify students in writing when such requests are granted and will send students the name of their new advisor.
Non-degree Students. While non-degree graduate students are not assigned faculty advisors, they are encouraged to consult individual faculty members or academic department chairs with respect to the appropriateness and availability of courses. Academic advisement is available for non-degree graduate students through the Office of Graduate Studies. Please call (607) 436-2523 to make an appointment.
