Five Faculty Senate members are appointed by the Faculty Senate chair-elect to the Undergraduate EPC, and five senators with full graduate faculty status are appointed by the chair-elect to the Graduate EPC.

Additional regular faculty may be appointed by the Faculty Senate chair-elect to the EPC with due regard for representation by curricular units of the university as needed so that the faculty membership equals the "ex officio" membership.

One member of each college curriculum body is elected by the respective college to the Undergraduate EPC. One member of each college graduate coordinating body with full graduate faculty status is elected by the respective college to the Graduate EPC.

One undergraduate student appointed by the Undergraduate Student Government and one graduate student appointed by the Graduate Student Senate serve as observers on the respected council with rights of participation, but without a vote.
