If the Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) in your department has completed the FERPA training, which is required to access information in PeopleSoft and CIS, they can fill out the form below to gain access to the Online Committee Petition page.  This is necessary in order for they to review & approve exceptions by the department regarding committee policy:  i.e., for non-tenure-line faculty to serve on committees in lieu of tenure-line faculty for a Blanket Petition.  There are also Set committees for professional degrees and Core committees.
