Academic Advising Policies

Your academic, professional, and personal success is our priority. Each Dornsife student is assigned to a graduate advisor and a faculty mentor.

Your graduate advisor will serve as your point of contact for academic and administrative issues. Graduate advisors are assigned by academic department. Visit the Contact page to find your advisor.

Your faculty mentor will provide guidance in course selection and completion of the final master’s project (Integrated Learning Experience). Faculty mentors will be assigned by your academic department and you will receive that information via email.

Students have access to staff and faculty beyond those with whom they are assigned to work. In order to take advantage of these relationships and opportunities, we encourage you to participate in the academic and career support programs posted to the Events Calendar.

Advising and Mentorship

To ensure timely and correct completion of the curriculum, students should meet with their Graduate Advisor and Faculty Mentor. Faculty Mentors provide career advice, are connected with local, national, and international public health resources, and are excellent sounding boards for advice on educational and professional matters.

Faculty Mentors are also instrumental in helping a student to complete their master’s project. Graduate Advisors are assigned to students by department and are available to assist students with registration, course selection, academic issues, etc. The Graduate Advisor is the student’s liaison to central offices within the University, such as Drexel Central which houses the Financial Aid, Bursar’s Office, and the Office of the Registrar.
