Each program is assigned a graduate director for advising.
Before you are able to register for courses, you will need to have your graduate director
approve your course listing.
1. For a preliminary listing of suggested courses for new students, please refer to the registration instructions per academic program. Note that this is a suggested list only, and final approval of your courses will
be given by your graduate director. *If you have enrolled as a Non-Degree Seeking student or Humanities student with the intention of eventually applying to another program, please indicate this
on the Braniff School Advising Form in the "Optional Comments" section.
2. Complete and submit the "Braniff Graduate School Advising Form” located at the
Registrar's Student Forms webpage at: https://udallas.edu/offices/registrar/student-forms.php. (There is a place on the form for comments if needed.) Based on the program entered,
the form will automatically be routed via email to the appropriate Graduate Director/Advisor.
3a. If the form is approved, your advisor will forward the form via email to email@example.com. (You will
be copied on this email using the email address submitted on the form.)
3b. If the form is not approved, your advisor will forward the form via email to your email address with advice about
what to change. If this happens, you will need to reply to the email with agreement
or communication regarding the requested change. Once this is finalized and agreed
to by both you and the advisor via email, the advisor will forward the form and communication
regarding the approval to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Once the Registrar's Office has received the approved form, the holds on your registration
will be removed and confirmation sent via email.
5. Proceed with online registration for courses.
Please note: for those courses that are registered for by paper only, i.e., Thesis/Doctoral Research
and Directed Readings, the printed email of the form approved by your advisor can
be attached to the registration form and substitute for the Graduate Director’s signature.
