M.R.P. Exit Project Advisor Selection and Change Form

Special Committee

Students in professional degree programs select a special advisory committee in accordance with degree requirements established by their field. In the Master of Regional Planning (M.R.P.) program, the City and Regional Planning (CRP) department requires a minimum of two special advisors — an exit project advisor and an exit project minor advisor. The special committee, under the leadership of the advisor, has the primary responsibility for overseeing each student's selection of coursework and completion of studies. Special advisors and students are urged to meet at least once a year.


Each student selects the members of his or her exit project committee, with their consent, from the current graduate faculty. Any member of the graduate faculty may serve on an exit project committee, subject to the limitations imposed on different categories of that faculty. The current faculty list is available on the Graduate School website.


CRP requires that all M.R.P. students have a full exit project committee (advisor and minor advisor) no later than the end of the second semester.

Changes to Membership

A student may change the membership of his or her exit project committee with the approval of all the members of the newly constituted committee. Notice of such change must be filed immediately with the graduate field assistant.

No change may be made to an exit project committee during the three months prior to the final examination, except with the approval, by petition, of the director of graduate studies.


Any member may resign at any time from an exit project committee. Failure to reconstitute a full committee endangers a student's further registration in the college.


  • If you are making a change to your exit project committee, review the section titled changes to membership
  • After obtaining the signatures of your committee members, submit the completed form to the CRP office, 106 Sibley Hall, no later than the end of your first year.

Fields marked with * are required.
