Forms

These are forms for currently enrolled graduate students.  They are listed in the usual chronological order in which students complete them.

To form your Graduate Advisory Committee, report the names of your committee members to the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM). The GSSM will then check each member’s faculty status, and complete PART I: REPORT OF DOCTORAL COMMITTEE COMPOSITION on the “Report of Doctoral Committee Composition & Approved Dissertation Project” form. Once Part I has been completed by the GSSM, you will need to obtain the signature of each committee member, and then return it to the GSSM, who will obtain the signature of the Director of Graduate Studies.

Before your Oral Comprehensive Examination, obtain a “Doctoral Exam Report” form from the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM). The GSSM will complete the form with your name, PID# and Department information. Once you have completed your oral exam, have your committee chair (i.e. your adviser) sign PART II: REPORT OF ORAL EXAMINATION on the “Doctoral Exam Report” form, and then return it to the GSSM.

After you submit your Written Examination to your committee, obtain your “Doctoral Exam Report” form from the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM).  After passing the exam, have your committee chair (i.e. your adviser) sign PART I: REPORT OF PRELIMINARY WRITTEN EXAMINATION, and then return it to the GSSM.

Before your Feasibility Meeting, obtain your “Report of Doctoral Committee Composition & Approved Dissertation Project” form from the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM).  After you have passed, have all members of your committee sign PART II: REPORT OF APPROVED DISSERTATION PROJECT, and then return it to the GSSM.

For Annual Committee Meetings in each year in which you do not submit another form, print the “Annual committee report” form.  Then, have all of your committee members sign it, and deliver it to the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM).

Once your Pre-Defense Committee Meeting is complete, please have your graduate advisory committee sign the “Pre-Defense Meeting” form and then deliver it to the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM).

Before your Defense of Dissertation, obtain your “Doctoral Exam Report” form from the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM).  After you have passed, have all members of your committee sign PART III: REPORT OF THE FINAL ORAL EXAMINATION, and then return it to the GSSM.

When your Written Dissertation is ready for final committee approval, obtain your “Doctoral Exam Report” form from the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager (the GSSM), and have all members of your committee sign PART IV: REPORT OF THE FINAL DISSERTATION, and then return it to the GSSM.

All forms from the UNC Graduate School are compiled here.

If you have further questions about the above forms, then please contact the Biology Department’s Graduate Student Services Manager.

The Suggestion Box for EEOB grad students is here.  This is a way for students to provide input and feedback to improve the strength and operation of the EEOB graduate program.  Your suggestion will be sent to the EEOB Director of Graduate Studies.  Unless you include your name, your suggestion will be anonymous.
