As an advisor, you will most likely need to use MyMav, the University’s student information system. All the pertinent information about a student, including demographic data, registration, grades, financial aid, tuition and fees, and degree plan requirements is housed in MyMav. (The MyMav Tutorials for Faculty page provides guidance for new users.)
You will need to get access to areas not necessarily needed by other faculty members. To get access to the areas of MyMav necessary for advisors, your Department Chair should contact the OIT Help Desk on your behalf to request access to the screens necessary for advising. Also, make sure to attend GMAP training.
Other resources for advisors include the following:
- Advising videos from the Office of International Education (CPT and OPT)
- Other Graduate Advisors (One of the best resources is the knowledge of your peers!)
- Graduate Catalog
- Graduate Faculty Membership
- Information for Faculty/Staff regarding PhD requirements
- University Handbook of Operating Procedures
