Right to Major Professor and Advisory Committee

After meeting conditions stipulated by the department or program, a student has the right to participate in the selection of a major professor and a committee. It is the student’s responsibility to ascertain the willingness of the major professor, and each committee member, to serve. Final responsibility for determining the major professor and composition of the committee rests with the academic unit and The Graduate School. The right to a committee may be rescinded if the student fails to demonstrate appropriate academic achievement and/or acceptable professional conduct, as determined by the department/program, or by The Graduate School.
