I've Been Admitted. Now What?

1) Contact your academic advisor, and then register for classes.

Congratulations!  After the Graduate College notifies you of your admission to a master's degree program with an emphasis in Talent Development, contact Dr. Susan Field Waite to schedule an advising appointment: She will be one of your professors in the master's program in addition to serving as your graduate advisor.

You will have options for how your advising session is held (e.g., video-conference, phone call).  After your initial advising meeting, register for classes as soon as your time slot allows. Some classes may fill up quickly.
