Our advisors take an active role in assisting you throughout your academic career at UNLV. We recommend you meet with your advisor on a regular basis to ensure appropriate progress toward your degree.
Advisors are assigned by the graduate coordinator and are usually your major teacher. If you are a new graduate student, schedule an appointment with your advisor before registering for classes to determine your course of study. You will be advised upon matriculation as to which, if any, areas need special attention.
Advisory committee chairs and Graduate College representatives serving on advisory committees must have full graduate faculty status. Graduate advisory committee members must hold full or associate status. A list of all graduate faculty, both full and associate, may be found on the Graduate College website.
