The College for Creative Studies believes that academic advising is a developmental process that assists students in the clarification of life, education and career goals. Graduate students are required to meet with their assigned Graduate Faculty Advisor on a regular basis or as needed to ensure that they are taking the required courses for graduation. Graduate Advisors are responsible for ensuring that students are making satisfactory progress toward their degree. Each semester, Graduate Advisors review the Academic Evaluations of all M.F.A. students. Students who do not follow the curriculum may have a hold placed on their record to ensure proper course selection for the following semester.
