The School of Art Graduate Advisor is Robert Yi. To schedule an appointment please e-mail Also listed are important advising scheduling policies:

Cancellation of Appointments

Situations arise that may create a need to reschedule or cancel an appointment. Please cancel your appointment online or email your advisor at least two hours before the scheduled time. Please respect the advisor’s time as they will return the courtesy if they need to reschedule.

Appointment No-Show Policy

This policy is not meant to be disciplinary, but to be fair and equitable to all students. During peak advising periods, appointment times are premium. If you do not notify your academic advisor two hours in advance that you are unable to keep an appointment, your absence will be noted as a “no-show.” Advisors will then give priority to students who keep their appointment times. Repeat offenders will not be able to schedule appointments until the end of the peak-advising season.

Late Appointment Policy

If you are 15 minutes or more late for an advising appointment, you will need to reschedule.
