When you apply and are accepted to UGAR programs, you are entering into a contract with the faculty mentor to work together on a specific project. Both you and the faculty mentor have made a commitment to each other to do this research. Students are expected to abide by this commitment, and therefore requests to switch faculty mentors or research projects after students are accepted to programs will not be considered. Exceptions are made only for extenuating circumstances (e.g. the faculty mentor leaves the College).
