Anticipated dates might need to be revised on the way. The candidate must conserve a realistic schedule that enables the required time for every step along the way, such as the project Chair’s studying of, and feedback on, drafts from the Prospectus, Proposal, and final manuscript. The required time should be allotted for that committee members’ studying of individuals documents too. Candidates and Chairs should notice that committee people need a minimum of fourteen days to see the Prospectus, Proposal and subsequent manuscript drafts. These 4 elements should be thought about when scheduling committee conferences and also the final defense.
It’s also down to the Chair and candidate to think about deadlines for particular graduation dates. College graduation deadlines are printed around the Graduate School website (links: Thesis and Dissertation and Graduate Calendar ). Since deadlines may vary from twelve months to another, candidates are encouraged to refer to the present deadlines when approaching the ultimate stages from the Dissertation process. Candidates and Chairs also needs to consider program minimum review needs when thinking about a possible graduation semester.
