Academic Policy  1405.19

Request for Graduate Faculty Status

Graduate Faculty Application

Appointment application will be used by the following individuals:

  • Contingent (unpaid, non-UAF) faculty requesting graduate faculty status
  • UAF faculty who are requesting graduate faculty status
  • UAF staff who are requesting to teach graduate-level classes

Non-UAF Contingent (unpaid) Faculty Members

Non-UA faculty members seeking graduate faculty status at the university are appointed through Workday as contingent (formerly adjunct) faculty. The process of approving such appointments as well as appointing faculty who lack the terminal degree are processed through Workday.

The process for requesting Graduate faculty status for non-UAF contingent faculty requires the candidate to fill out and sign form 1405.19 and forward to the department chair with a vita or resume. The department chair fills out their portion of the form, signs, and sends the form and candidate’s vita or resume to their Graduate Council representative.  Following approval by the Graduate Council Representative, the form will be forwarded to the Graduate School for final approval by the Graduate Council and processing.

UAF Faculty or Staff Members

The process to request graduate faculty status for UAF faculty or staff requires the candidate to fill out and sign form 1405.19 and forward to the department chair with a vita or resume. The department chair (or appropriate administrator) fills out their portion of the form, signs, and sends the form and candidate’s vita or resume to their Graduate Council representative.  Following approval by the Graduate Council Representative, the form will be forwarded to the Graduate School for final approval by the Graduate Council and processing. UAF staff are allowed only the graduate-faculty level necessary to teach graduate-level classes; to serve on or direct committees, staff must be appointed as contingent faculty.

Should the individual need to be reappointed following the conclusion of the original appointment period, or should an increase in graduate faculty status be required, a new request must be submitted.
