Faculty members are expected to respond to informational questioning and course-related student e-mails within 48 hours, excepting holidays and weekends.

Note: Responses to e-mails that require more content analysis may extend beyond 48 hours, although faculty members should communicate to students within 48 hours, excepting holidays and weekends, that they are working on the issue.

In dissertation or doctoral study courses:

  • Faculty and staff have 14 days to review drafts of dissertation or doctoral study chapters.

  • Students should remember that each reviewer has 14 days to review materials submitted as part of the dissertation or doctoral study.

  • If a draft is returned for additional revisions by a committee member, the 14-day window restarts when you submit the new draft for review.
