Dear Masters Students,

A reminder that if you will be finishing up your thesis in spring or summer 2015, you should be following the time line posted on  "Deadlines" in red type at the bottom of the screen.

Thesis students will contact the thesis & dissertation coordinator at Fenwick Library for a format review (  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 schedules fill up quickly. Please email me to reserve a room once you have your defense date.
The last date to hold a thesis defense for spring graduation will be April  24.

 Biology Project students need to complete the oral and written comprehensive exams before the degree conferral date found on, and turn in the project report to their committee.  I've attached a time line for students completing a project.

Bioinformatics & Comp Biology Project students will complete their report for a grade, and present their research findings in a poster session at Student Research Day in Bull Run Hall on April 29, 2015.

Only Bioinformatics students are required to present their research at Student Research Day, but I encourage all students to participate.

Any questions please let me know!

Thank you,
Diane St. Germain
