Advisors are as critical to student success as classroom
work. Through the advising process, faculty members will learn
about your personal and professional goals and can share life
experiences and connections to help you achieve your academic
and professional goals.
TCOM students are assigned a faculty advisor upon declaring
a major. Contact the School of Media and Communication office
to find out your advising assignment, then plan to meet with
your advisor at least once a semester.
Effective faculty advising sessions:
- instill the importance of a liberal arts education
- promote self-discipline and good planning
- press the importance of taking responsibility for
- complete your Junior
Audit to graduate on your planned date
A substantial investment is required by both the faculty
and students to make the advising relationship a success.
Both must come prepared and follow through on commitments
made to one another.
Students filing grade change appeals must do so by the fifth
week of the following semester (summer does not count) and
the grade appeal process must be completed by the end of the
semester in which the grade appeal has been filed. All grade
appeals may be addressed to Dr. Srnivas Melkote, who will
communicate with the TCOM Chair.
