Graduate Studies Advising

Welcome! Here you will find advising information for current, prospective, and international students pursuing a master’s degree from Chico State.

Academic Advising and the Role of the Department

As a graduate student, you will work closely with your academic department. Each department has a graduate coordinator who advises graduate students throughout their program.

Please be sure to check with your graduate coordinator about any questions you may have about program requirements. Additionally, graduate coordinators can be of assistance in the following areas:

  • Helping you choose courses
  • Assist with developing a Graduate Advisory Committee
  • Assist students to develop and carry out a culminating activity such as a master’s thesis or project (if applicable to the program)
  • Advise students on graduation requirements
  • Provide career advising

Remember, all graduate students are required to maintain a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 (B) in all coursework taken at any accredited institution subsequent to admission to the master's program; all coursework taken at CSU, Chico following admission to the program; and all courses taken in fulfillment of your approved program.
