The goal of the current study was to further the research findings generated by Wrench and Punyanunt (2004, 2005, 2008), and Punyanunt-Carter and Wrench (2008), which examined the influence of a variety of communication variables in the graduate adviser-advisee interpersonal relationship. The current study examined undergraduate and graduate advisee perceptions of advisers' interactional justice, sociocommunicative style, and credibility. Findings revealed that undergraduate advisees scored higher on adviser assertiveness than did graduate advisees. Moreover, graduate advisees reported higher ratings of adviser trustworthiness and mentoring than did undergraduate advisees.
