Students as Faculty
A student pursuing a graduate degree at this institution may not be appointed as a member of the General Faculty, except under the following conditions:
- The appointment may be made only if the appointment begins in the same semester that the degree is awarded.
- The appointment may be made only if the conditions of employment are approved by The Graduate School, the academic program chair and dean, if appropriate, of the program in which the student is pursuing a degree, and the employing academic program chair and dean, if appropriate.
Graduate students normally do not teach other graduate students from the same academic program. Academic programs may apply for exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis by submitting a Request for Permission for a Graduate Student to Teach a Graduate Course within Their Own Academic Program Form to The Graduate School for evaluation. In such cases, a full-time faculty member must be designated as the graduate student's teaching supervisor and the instructor of record.
