Extra-Curricular and Research Project Approval Request

While on department funding as a graduate associate or as a graduate fellow, any and all activities and/or projects, other than curriculum assignments, Graduate Teaching Assignments, and department productions, must have written permission from your advisor, consent of the appropriate faculty and approval by the Director of Graduate Studies. In addition, projects and activities for which you will be paid require approval from the Graduate School in advance of the project or activity taking place.

These projects and activities include:

  • Involvement in any stage, film, or video production outside the department season, whether in the department, the university, or outside the university.
  • Teaching of any classes other than the assigned GTA classes, whether in the department, the university, or outside the university.
  • Participation in student organizations that require time away from your academic responsibilities.
  • Participation in conferences or research activities that require time away from your academic and GTA responsibilities. 
  • MFA actors who utilize the option to opt-out of a semester’s casting for professional and/or personal reasons.
  • Opportunity for employment not related to area of study.

Once you have submitted this form you will receive a copy of your application by email. Please print the email, meet with your advisor, receive advisor's signature and support of  project, and submit signed form to the Academic Program Coordinator for review in the Graduate Studies Committee.

This is your 8 or 9 digit ID number which appears on your Buck-ID above the 16 digit number
Please answer "Yes" if you expect this Project/Activity may affect your GTA responsibilities in ANY way, or require any accommodations to your teaching assignments. (This could be as little as ending one class a few minutes early!)
Please be as descriptive as possible.
