Graduate students are advised by individual faculty members from the department offering their degree. Faculty graduate advisers assist graduate students in obtaining information about the graduate degree programs offered in their department at Lehman College, meeting the graduation requirements set forth by the Graduate Curriculum Committee, and planning a schedule of courses. You should reach out to a program adviser when you are interested in a specific program, before you enroll in your first semester, and before each registration period to discuss your program of study.
