Just received this today from the Graduate School:
The Graduate School has extended the deadline for preliminary review of theses and dissertations for Spring 2012 graduation from March 2 to March 30, 2012. The Graduate School’s Thesis/Dissertation Consultant has been away from the office for an extended period of time but plans to continue working with students electronically by email part time. The Graduate School is seeking to identify additional resources to assist the Consultant with handling the document reviews and submissions of thesis and dissertation students who are targeting graduation for Spring 2012. Students should continue to send communication to the thesis email address.
Please note that Spring 2012 deadlines for defense of thesis and dissertation (April 9), submission of pass/fail forms (April 20), and submission of thesis and dissertation documents along with approval sheets (April 20) will remain valid.
Please be assured that the staff members in the Graduate School are working to see that students’ needs are met.
