Important Deadlines

Deadlines for Proposals, Defenses, and Final Submissions

Please note: All proposals should be submitted to your individual committee members for their approval at least one week before the submission deadline. (Earlier submission to the committee is strongly advised.) Otherwise, you cannot expect faculty members to read and approve drafts in time to meet deadlines.

All proposals must be submitted as a Word-compatible attachment sent to [email protected] as well as signature pages and proposals must be submitted in hard copy.

Any questions or concerns may be sent to John Gooch, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, while Alice Presti is on maternity leave (Nov. 14, 2019 – Feb. 19, 2020).
