Temporary Graduate Faculty Status

Temporary Graduate Faculty Status can be granted to qualified tenure-track faculty who are new to the university and do not have teaching evaluations from VSU. It can also be granted to qualified non-tenure track faculty who have the educational and experiential credentials to teach a course when a tenure track graduate faculty member is not available.

To apply for Temporary Graduate Faculty Status the faculty member must submit a current Curriculum Vita to his/her department Chair. The Department Chair will write a memo to the Graduate Dean requesting temporary status for the faculty member. The Department Head will send the memo and Curriculum Vita to the Graduate Dean for Approval.
