Timeline for graduation
The timeline for graduation, as well as other frequently asked questions and reminders is located in the accordion below. In addition, BSD has guidance on the dissertation document.
PhD Candidacy forms should be filed after the dissertation proposal is accepted. Divisional policy states that all students are to be admitted to candidacy by the end of their ninth quarter (end of Autumn Quarter, year 3).
