As soon as you are admitted to any of the graduate programs in Reading and Language Arts, including the Official Certificate Program (OCP), create a CCSU email account to use throughout your studies. It is imperative that you use a CCSU email account because ALL email communication with your academic advisor, your course instructors, and the University will be done through this account, not your personal email. You will certainly miss important messages if you do not check your CCSU email often.
After you create your CCSU email account, contact your academic advisor to set up your first meeting with him/her. In this meeting you will develop a plan of study and you will be informed about program requirements beyond course expectations.
If during your studies you have any concerns/questions/suggestions, you are encouraged to contact your advisor. You are also encouraged to discuss concerns and share your suggestions with the Department Chair and/or other Literacy Education faculty in the Department of Literacy, Elementary, and Early Childhood Education.
