The final exam represents the culminating milestone in the PhD process. Because most of the details of the final exam are determined by the Graduate School, students are encouraged to review the information provided on their site under Doctoral Student Resources. Of particular relevance are guidelines concerning the timing, outcomes and people involved in the exam (i.e., the reading committee).
For details on how to submit the dissertation, visit the Graduate School’s Thesis/Dissertation site. It is also important for each student to log in to his/her MyGrad to print out the appropriate forms prior to submitting the final dissertation to the Graduate School.
