The Advisory Committee will consist of no fewer than three members of the graduate faculty in whose selection the graduate student normally participates. It is recommended that one of the committee members be from a department other than the one in which the student is registered. The committee chair is normally the Advisor of the student's research, and is nominated by the Department Chair. The Advisory Committee must be established and the Advisory Committee Appointment form submitted to the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies not later than the 20th class day of the second registered semester.
