FORMS

Committee Appointment Form (find one applicable to degree type)

Committee appointment forms should be submitted as soon as a committee has been formed. They must be submitted before a work can be submitted for review.

Final Approval Form (find one applicable to degree type)

Once the student successfully defends their work, an approval form should be submitted. This is an electronic form that will workflow to the committee chair and any other required approvers. Students will not receive notification of approval until after the Graduate College completes the final check and remaining steps are completed. Students should submit their electronic copy to gradcollege@uni.edu as soon as this is submitted (not approved).

Fall 2021 Formatting Workshops - TBA

These workshops cover the formatting requirements for thesis-track MA, MAE, MS, and EdS students. Students who have a few chapters or partial selection drafted may benefit the most, though students at any point in the process are welcome to attend. The workshops will use Microsoft Word. If using LaTeX or another software, please contact the Thesis Reviewer.
