The University bestows the designation "Graduate Faculty" upon faculty following review of their credentials and recommendation by their colleagues. The University maintains four levels of graduate faculty: (1) Full, (2) Associate, (3) Adjunct, and (4) Affiliate.

Only Full graduate faculty members may chair doctoral committees. Full or Associate graduate faculty may chair master's committees. Only one adjunct or affiliate graduate faculty member may serve as a voting member on any master's or doctoral committee.

*Adjunct teaching only status no longer requires the submission of the Graduate Faculty Status application.*
