  • Examples:
    • I have a question regarding faculty eligibility for my dissertation committee.  Does (faculty member name) appointment with the department qualify him/her to be a member of my doctoral committee?
    • Am I able to use my Hintz funds to purchase my student membership to “X” society? 
    • I am planning to my comprehensive exam this semester. What do I need to know to begin this process?
    • One of the courses I have to take this fall must be scheduled by the training grant director and it is taking longer than expected to be sorted out. I am nervous since I do not have enough full time credits without that course. Until the scheduling is figured out, I was wondering if I could be registered for two credits of 596 with (faculty member name) instead of just one for now and adjust later, if needed, to maintain 12 credits. 
    • I have been working on preparing the documents for my qualifying exam and realize, I have not yet requested registration for TA credit and independent study credit. Would you be able to register me for both 602 and 596? I am not sure of the number of credits as I will be doing 10 hours of TA and 10 hours of RA. Currently I am registered for 2 other 3-credit courses, making my current course load 6 credits for the fall. I need to register for a maximum number of 12 credits per fall and spring semesters as a graduate assistant.
