Advising & Registration


Media, Culture, and Communication advising supports your academic, professional, and personal development, while also empowering you to take responsibility for your own growth in these areas. 

Advisors are available for appointments year-round. Use the calendar links to make an appointment with your primary advisor to discuss your program of study, academic and professional goals, or to solve complex registration issues.  

Appointments to meet with graduate advisors fill up quickly, especially during registration period. Please schedule appointments in advance.


You must be in touch with your primary advisor each semester to obtain registration clearance. You are responsible for monitoring registration deadlines, meeting degree requirements, and remaining on track for graduation. Registration deadlines are posted on the University Registrar’s academic calendar.

Rising second-year students are encouraged to keep in mind that the number of credits taken can impact financial aid packages, visa status, and/or student standing.
