- By the end of his/her first semester, it is the responsibility of each new student to submit the completed form to the Molecular Biology & Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Graduate Program Office. The form should be signed by the appropriate faculty members and student, and certified by the student’s major advisor in order to obtain a grade for MOLB 597.
- The qualifying examination should be taken after 12 credits of graduate work. Upon passing the qualifying examination, the student will be admitted to the doctoral program.
- Beginning with the second semester, each graduate student is expected to meet with his or her committee at least once per academic year to review progress toward your degree. The results of this committee meeting must be reported to the MOLB Program Secretary no later than July 15th of each year, using the Graduate Student Progress Evaluation Form. It is the student’s responsibility to schedule the committee meeting and deliver the signed Graduate Student Progress Evaluation Form to the MOLB Program Secretary in a timely manner.
- Please be aware of the deadlines for final exams, etc. for graduation as published by the Graduate School. The committee is then convened for a rigorous oral defense of the thesis. The defense of the thesis may lead to additional questions in regard to the student’s disciplinary knowledge base, but this is not a requisite of the exam. In special cases, this exam may also serve as the qualifying/core examination for the Ph.D. degree with pre-approval of the committee and the MBP director.
