Program Advising

Meet With Your Advisor Each Semester.

Review your Doctoral Program of Study/Master’s Course Sequence Plan.

If applicable, discuss the process for applying for:

  • Course Transfers – Identical graduate courses taken at other institutions that you wish to apply
  • Course Substitutions – Courses in your program that you want to substitute another course taken at UM
  • Drop/Add – Courses you wish to drop or add
  • Once you and your advisor have determined what courses you need to enroll in, she or he will remove the advising hold, which will allow you to register
  • Enroll in courses through CaneLink
