Effective immediately, the Graduate Degree Plan (GDP) milestone must be on the student's record before they can access the committee workflows. This means the GDP must be approved by the college and/or program, in addition to central data entry completed by Graduate Student Services & Progress (GSSP) and the Office of the Registrar (OTR). Also, a student is allowed only one committee request per degree objective (i.e., master's, PhD) in the workflow at the same time.
If a student requests a committee before their GDP is approved and processed, they will receive a message explaining why their new request cannot be processed; additionally, if a student requests a committee while already having a committee in queue, they will receive a similar message.
If you have questions about this notice, please contact GSSP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
