SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Greetings fellow students of psych! I am just getting started on my dissertation and have been contacting PhDs and PsyDs to recruit a reader for my committee. I attend Alliant Intl. California School of Forensic Studies. I have recently contacted a professor from another campus and in her reply she wanted to know if there was compensation for the position. I'm a little confused by this. I cannot find anything about this issue in my materials, and while I am awaiting a response from my campus I thought I'd pose the issue here for some additional guidance. I had thought that participating in someone's dissertation granted the committee members the credit in the dissertation itself. Has anyone else been through this before?
