Supervisory Committee Forms

Please complete and save the form electronically, print it, have it signed, then submit it to the Office of Graduate Education.  The mentor (chair) must sign the printed form, as must the coordinators.  The other committee members may acknowledge their addition or deletion from the committee by email.  If so, their emails should be printed and attached to the printed form.

Note that changes to a supervisory committee cannot be made more than half-way through the semester a student graduates.

Note that the co-chair does not have to be in the same concentration as the student – unless the co-chair will substitute for the chair a the qualifying exam or final defense.  The BMS will not allow a student to have their qualifying exam or final defense in the absence of the chair (mentor), so this requirement should never be applicable.

Committee Meeting Report Form

Click the link below to download the PDF supervisory committee report form. In addition to the Committee Report Form, the Committee/Mentor assessment form should also be completed and attached. If a virtual meeting takes place, each committee member must still sign the form confirming that they have read the student’s progress report and agree with the advisor’s assessment. Once both forms are completed and signed, they should be submitted to the Associate Dean for review.
