Regardless of the degree program in which you are enrolled, you are a member of the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) community.
We hope that during your time here you have formed a relationship with your faculty advisor and have been advised in your program curriculum and requirements. In addition to your faculty advisor, the college’s administrative staff provides a variety of services and guidance for graduate students. You may have gotten to know staff in the VPA Office of Graduate Student Affairs (GSAO) as you worked your way through the admissions process, and now that you are matriculated into one of the college’s programs, we are here to help you navigate the sometimes confusing academic and administrative procedures related to registration, degree requirements, degree certification, etc.
Please feel free to call, e-mail, or stop by the office at any time if you have any questions regarding assistantships, tuition scholarships, other financial awards, registration, academic paperwork, final semester requirements, etc. If we do not have the answer, we will refer you to the people who do.
A reminder: before you leave campus for an internship or semester away and upon graduation, please contact the VPA GSAO with your new contact information. We don’t want to lose you!
