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.
