Title: Review of Timeline and Requirements for Physics and Astronomy Graduate Students
Abstract: Requirements and procedures for new and continuing graduate students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy will be reviewed and discussed. Many of these requirements and expectations have specific ramifications for the completion of degree or the continuation of financial support. Forms submitted at the various stages in order to document completion of requirements will also be discussed with the intent of helping students avoid complications on the way to their degree.
New students will also be introduced.
All full-time physics and astronomy graduate students are required to attend. Faculty are welcome to attend if they have questions or would like more information about the structure or implementation of the graduate curriculum.
