Dear Masters Students,
If you will be finishing up your degree requirements in the summer 2017 semester, please apply for graduation on Patriot Web now, under the "Student Records" link. Information may be found on http://registrar.gmu.edu/students/graduation/timelines/
If you need to withdraw your spring 2017 application first in order to re-file for summer: http://registrar.gmu.edu/forms/graduation/ "withdraw graduation application".
Deadline to apply for summer 2017 graduation is June 29.
Please Note: It is best to go ahead and apply for graduation if there is a chance you may finish up in the summer term. You can always withdraw it at a later date.
Thesis students will contact the thesis & dissertation coordinator at Fenwick Library for a format review (http://thesis.gmu.edu/) This is a required step for graduation. Send them your draft early, do not wait until you have a final version. Set up your thesis defense date with your committee members now - again, do not wait since faculty may be travelling during the summer.
The last date to hold a thesis defense for summer graduation will be July 28. The thesis is due to the library by August 4.
Follow the time line for finishing up your thesis in summer, http://ssb.gmu.edu/students/index.cfm "Guidelines" at the top of the screen.
Biology Project students need to complete the oral and written comprehensive exams before the degree conferral date found on http://registrar.gmu.edu/calendars/, and turn in the project report to their committee. I've attached information for students completing the Project option.
Any questions please let me know! I will be away from the office June 23 - July 7 and will not be checking emails during that time.
Diane St. Germain
