Graduate Advising


The Graduate Programs office will be advising students remotely. Be assured your academic advisor will continue to work with you, though remotely (via email or Zoom) rather than in person. If you are not a current FSU graduate student, please email the appropriate academic program specialist below based on your program of interest.


The Graduate Programs Office manages the admission and advising of all students in master’s programs and doctoral program. Our academic program specialists are available to assist with admission questions related to the six master’s degrees and seven doctoral majors we offer and provide comprehensive advising and program planning services once students are enrolled. In addition, our staff members are able to provide a wide range of information about the resources and opportunities available to graduate students at Florida State University.

The office is located in Room 336 of the Rovetta Business Building (RBB) and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We encourage interested students to request an appointment with one of our advisors by contacting them directly via email, calling our office at 850-644-6458 or stopping by the office.

Students do not need to wait until registration begins to meet with an advisor to discuss future course schedules. For questions related to admission applications, please visit with us well in advance of the degree program’s posted admissions deadline so that we may ensure you have all the information you need to submit your application materials before the deadline.
