Graduate Faculty Appointment

Graduate Faculty Status categories and descriptions may be found in the Faculty Handbook 4.1.2.

We have revised the Graduate Faculty Status online application making it simpler for faculty to complete and for department chairs to approve. Faculty will only need to note if they would like to teach graduate courses, not list the courses. Department chairs will only need to approve the request to teach graduate course. Course correlations has transitioned to the Office of Accreditation and Policy.
