Advisor and Evaluator

Your Graduate Advisor provides academic advising and support in your field of study. Graduate Advisors are the primary guides for successful completion of your degree program. 

Your GAPE Evaluator compliments the central role of your faculty advisor. We authorize your advancement to graduate candidacy and confer your graduate degree.
