A comprehensive list of student resources is provided on the Student Resources Quick Links page.

All students are enrolled in the Academic Advising site on Canvas. The site contains information about where to get assistance in various areas.

We have an Online Student Advisor who answers student questions and provides information via the advising site in Canvas.

We have a full time Student Services Coordinator who is the primary point of contact for administrative questions and procedures.

Students also have access to the Graduate Advisor who oversees the advising process and answers questions and deals with complaints.
In support of students the Graduate Advisor maintains two blogs and answers questions posted there.

SLIS21 blog for all kinds of curriculum information
Advising blog

Each student also has an academic advisor who can act as a point of help.
