Choosing an Advisor
The department will assign one of the English department's faculty as your advisor-of-record. However, if you know a particular professor in the department whom you wish to be your advisor, you may ask him or her to take on that role. If you make your own arrangements for an advisor, you must email the English department coordinator to ensure that the correct advisor is listed on your student record in Polaris.
Students are free to change their advisor at any time, but you must email the English department coordinator to have your new advisor listed on your record.
