The ETS Academic Dean is responsible for general student advising. The class selection aspect of advising is straightforward in that students are admitted in cohorts. Students receive a plan of study when they enroll, and they simply follow it to graduation. The ETS Academic Dean monitors students’ progress through the program and addresses any questions about scheduling and/or progress. The ETS Academic Dean works on the ETS campus and serves as the primary on-campus liaison for students. The larger concerns of advising such as vocational choices, possibilities of doctoral studies, etc. can be addressed to Lee and ETS program coordinators, as well as faculty who teach in the programs. Since most of the students and faculty travel from a distance to the campus for their studies, communication between students, faculty and staff often takes place electronically. Students have full access via email and video conferencing to the program coordinators and faculty.
