Committee, Transfers, Exceptions and Candidacy (CTEC) Form


On Track for Graduation?

Please check the graduation timeline, use the Master’s or Doctoral completion checklist, and apply for graduation the semester BEFORE you plan to graduate.  Completing all tasks ahead of time will allow you to graduate on time.


NOTE: As of January 1, 2020, a Plan of Study is no longer required by the Graduate School.

Complete and submit the Committee, Transfers, Exceptions and Candidacy (CTEC) Form. The committee section identifies student, committee chair/ major professor, and members. The CTEC Form will require all committee members’ Auburn University email address and the CVs and full email addresses of any outside committee members. The form includes some helpful tips about the validation process.

When submitting the CTEC form, you will be prompted to include any transfer courses or curriculum exceptions/substitutions. For doctoral students only, submission and approval of the CTEC form is required to access the application for the General Oral Exam.

The Graduate School will be notified when the form is submitted. Complete information is required to initiate the process.

Further information regarding the committee selection form can be found on the CTEC Form FAQ page.

Faculty & Staff

If transfer courses and/or exceptions are listed, a workflow process will route the committee selection form to the student’s committee chair/major professor. When approval is needed, the committee chair/major professor will receive an email with a link to sign in, review the transfers and exceptions, and either Approve or Roll Back. Once the approval or roll back has been received, or if the student has no exceptions or transfer work, the Graduate School will review and notify the student and committee members accordingly.
