Common reasons you may need to change your faculty advisor and/or a member of your committee:
- The faculty member leaves the university
- Your research interests or your thesis/dissertation topic changes substantially
- Your relationship with the faculty member becomes strained
- A committee member’s extended absence from campus makes scheduling meetings and/or exams unreasonably difficult
Once a graduate student has advanced to candidacy, the Request for Reconstitution of Committee Form needs to be submitted to Graduate Division to make a change.
For more information about changing your faculty advisor and/or committee membership, please contact your SSHA Graduate Coordinator.
