In rare circumstance, graduate students who cannot identify a major professor (excluding students on rotations) or who cannot form a committee shall be placed on a status called “No clear path to degree completion.” This status is distinct from “Not in good standing,” which refers to academic status. Students will be given one semester after being placed on this status by their unit/program to identify a major professor or form a committee. Graduate coordinators should work closely with the student to try to rectify the problem. If the situation is not resolved during this semester, the student can be dismissed from the program.
