if you plan to walk in the May graduation, you must also adhere to the May Graduation deadlines. Thus, students who are completing their internship, must have completed all other requirements for May Graduation according to this timeline.

Students must submit their approved signed abstract along with an electronic copy of their dissertation to the student services coordinator at least two weeks before scheduling a defense.  Upon receipt of that, a room will be reserved and the defense will be posted on the bulletin board and in the next issue of the gazette.
