If a student’s research interests change to the point that the student and his/her Guidance Committee decide his/her interests would best be served by participation in a different major area of study, the procedure to do so is as follows:
- A brief request signed by the student and the Guidance Committee chair stating the desire to change major area of study should be prepared.
- The request should then be submitted to both Co-Directors, with a copy to the co-leaders of both the old and the new major area of study. This can be done electronically. Major areas of study are represented by a faculty co-leaders from each university, as follows:
