Students in the first semester of the MA program must meet with the Graduate Chair in order to receive advising for course selection. You review the MA Plan of Study together and discuss options and possibilities for courses in the coming semesters. Each semester you will be able to find Seminar Course Descriptions on the English Department website. After that meeting, the Graduate Chair will give you permission to register for classes through my.newpaltz.edu.
After your first semester, you do not need to meet with the Graduate Chair in order to register (but are encouraged to do so if they have problems or questions). Students should keep track of their requirements, however, by carefully consulting the MA Plan of Study.
