Committee Approval Forms: Master’s and Doctoral Students

In March 2020, the Graduate School updated the committee approval process for both Master’s Thesis and Doctoral Students:

  • Electronic Doctoral Dissertation Approval: Final Exams scheduled after March 3, 2020 include a link for Reading Committee Members to approve the dissertation online.
  • Doctoral students can monitor the approvals via MGP or their e-mails.
  • The Master’s Supervisory Committee Approval Form is still a paper form. However, a second page has been added to provide instructions to students who are not able to collect ink signatures from their committee members; e-mailed approvals will be acceptable.
  • We encourage GPAs and GPCs to direct graduating students to Preparing to Graduate¬†for an overview of the graduation process.
