About

The Slavic Languages and Literatures program from University of Washington is a small one, which ensures that faculty are generally well aware of the progress that individual students are making towards their degree.

Overview

Key facts

When students first enter the department, the Graduate Program Coordinator is by default their advisor of record and the person they should contact with any questions about coursework. The Graduate Program Coordinator and Graduate Program Advisor schedule a meeting with incoming students to review their current schedule and to discuss further coursework for the academic year. The Graduate Program Coordinator is also the individual who reviews students’ academic records at the end of each quarter.

During their second quarter of residence, students of the Slavic Languages and Literatures program from University of Washington are required to choose an advisor or advisors whom they will consult for the remainder of their time as students or until such time as they select another advisor. The student and advisor(s) sign a form indicating that they have agreed to work together; this form is submitted to the Graduate Program Advisor, who places it in the student’s file. Students may opt to change advisors at any time and should not feel constrained to stay with their original advisor. In such an instance, a new form should be signed and placed in the student’s file.  

At the beginning of each new quarter, the Graduate Program Advisor provides the student and advisor(s) with an updated copy of the student’s requirements worksheet, showing what courses the student has completed and allowing both student and advisor to see what requirements remain. This is intended to ensure that any potential problems (e.g. with scheduling) can be dealt with in a timely manner and averted. Students are expected to meet with their advisor at least once a quarter to review their progress and discuss the next quarter’s projected work.
