Each graduate student’s program is planned with an adviser who is a graduate faculty member appointed by the department head or dean. The adviser interprets departmental requirements and arranges an orderly sequence of activities for the student’s progress toward the anticipated degree. The student is responsible for continuing in satisfactory academic standing and for meeting all the degree requirements and deadlines for graduation or licensure. Therefore, students are advised to consult with their advisers frequently and to request their advisers to develop a tentative written plan of study. This plan is to be placed on file in The Graduate School.

The Academic Integrity Policy states the precepts, violations, and obligations of academic integrity. In addition, graduate students are expected to comply with the social regulations of the University as set forth in the UNCG Policies for Students available online on The Dean of Students website.
