This form is to be used to apply for eligibility to teach doctoral and/or master's courses and/or participate as a committee member on dissertation and/or thesis committees.

Effective fall 2019, the application is accessed via InfoReady Review. Paper applications will not be accepted.

  • Once completed by the faculty member, the application for eligibility to teach graduate courses will be routed sequentially to the department's Graduate Review Committee, which will be responsible for reviewing and verifying the information contained in the application, and to the department's chair, who will review and render an individual recommendation.
    • Application routing is driven by the names/emails entered by the applicant in the application form.
  • Once approved by the Review Committee Chair and the department chair, the application is routed to the dean of the School of Graduate Studies and Research, who will make the final decision.
  • Please note: Department chairs may not sign as both an applicant and as department chair. Department chairs should seek the approval signature from their academic dean or a senior member of the program faculty. Similarly, Graduate Review Committee chairs should have another member of the committee sign the application to represent the Graduate Review Committee.

Final approval by the dean of the School of Graduate Studies and Research renders the applicant eligible to teach graduate courses. However, final teaching assignments for graduate courses will continue to rest with the department chairperson and the dean of the college.
