Forms for Thesis Students

Forms for All Master's Students


Doctoral students must complete forms A-G in order. Forms submitted to The Graduate College out of order will not be processed, which can delay scholarships, grants, and graduation. Doctoral students are responsible for submitting documents that require signatures from The Graduate College Dean or Associate Dean to the office of The Graduate College.


Applicants are responsible for submitting documents that require the appropriate signatures to The Graduate College.

Signature Policy

While original (wet) signatures are preferred, there may be situations as determined by the chair of the committee in which obtaining original signatures is inefficient or has the potential to delay the student's progress. In those situations, the following methods of signing are acceptable:

  • printing, signing and faxing the form
  • printing, signing, scanning, and emailing the form
  • notifying the department in an email from their university's or institution's email account that the committee chair can sign the form on their behalf
  • downloading and digitally signing the form per our instructions using the university's licensed platform (which is currently Adobe Acrobat)

If this process results in more than one document with signatures, all documents need to be submitted to The Graduate College together.
