Research Proposal Procedure





A member of your committee may refuse to approve the research proposal if he/she feels that the proposed work or its presentation does not meet the standard for the degree.  In such a case, the committee member must give reason for refusal.  The research proposal cannot move forward in the approval process until all members of the committee are satisfied.  A student having difficulty understanding the reasons for the refusal or the actions on his/her part required to resolve them may consult the Assistant Chair for Graduate Studies in the department for assistance or the Department Chair if the Assistant Chair for Graduate Studies is directly involved in the situation.  Also, your proposal must be reviewed by the departmental Graduate Committee, which may require modifications.
