The Department of Computer Science offers students two graduate advisors, one academic advisor and one faculty advisor. These advisors are available to assist students, as well as to mentor and monitor students.
Your advisor will be able to answer day-to-day questions, such as figuring out what to take next term, dealing with a course that you are having trouble in, completing the paperwork that goes along with being a graduate student at RIT, or just to talk with when you are feeling a bit overwhelmed.
Appointments can be made at the CS Student Services Office to see one of the two graduate advisors. Please no same day appointments. There are also graduate office hours on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2pm-3pm in the CS Student Services Office. There are no office hours during finals week and break week or during summer. Office hours are available for students to come in without an appointment for quick questions. Students may also email general questions to email@example.com.

While faculty advisors can discuss both academic and personal issues and address many of the same issues as the graduate advisors, the real strength of faculty advisors lies in their professional expertise. Talk to your faculty advisor about career options, choices to make in selecting Computer Science or outside electives, project or thesis ideas, or perhaps to get their opinion on several co-op opportunities that you have.
