Duties and Responsibilities

  • The academic advisory committee and student should plan, develop, and review a plan of study which will provide course work that fulfills departmental requirements and provides comprehensive professional training.
  • At a minimum, students will meet with their advisory committees annually to review the student’s academic progress toward the degree.
  • Students must petition for course approval or transfer of credit through their advisory committees. Students may not petition to waive, transfer, or substitute any of the core proseminars. The student’s advisory committee may approve courses other than those on the approved list of courses for credit toward the Ph.D. in Criminal Justice; however, transfer of graduate credits must be forwarded to the Director of Graduate Studies for approval. Final approval of transfer credit rests with the University Graduate School.
  • The burden is on the student to demonstrate why the course or transfer of credit should be allowed.
  • The chairperson of the student’s advisory committee is responsible for signing all required forms.
  • Final responsibility for course selection and the meeting of departmental and University Graduate School requirements resides with the student.
