Submit the Application for Candidacy as soon as you finish your comprehensive exams and at least three months prior to your final defense.
Submit the Appointment for Exam form at least 10 business days before your final defense. All previous forms (Supervisory Committee form, Program of Study, and Application for Candidacy form) must be approved before the Appointment for Exam can be processed.
Your GPC will submit the Record of Exam form after your exam. You must not handle the Record of Exam form once it is completed.
Once you complete all dissertation requirements, consult with your GPC for department-specific review procedures and have your GPC submit your dissertation to the School of Graduate Studies for review.
