Thesis Advisory Committee
Before a master's student can enroll in thesis hours, a Thesis Advisory Committee Form must be submitted and approved, so the committee is recorded in the student's record in the university system. Also, anytime changes in committee members and/or their roles on the committee occur, a Thesis Advisory Committee Form must be resubmitted and approved.
The Committee must contain the following:
- Chair (Graduate Faculty member)
- Minimum of three committee members (All must hold Graduate Faculty or Graduate Faculty Scholar appointments)
- A majority must be members of the Graduate Faculty
- At least one member must have served previously on a thesis or dissertation committee that graduated a student, either at UCF or at another accredited institution. If the Chair does not have this experience, another graduate faculty member who has this experience may serve in this role as Vice Chair. Under certain circumstances (see below), a graduate faculty scholar who serves as co-chair and has previous committee experience may serve as Vice Chair.
For the policy, see Master's Program Policies.
Form: Thesis Advisory Committee Form.
Remember to resubmit this form anytime there are changes to the student's committee.
