The College of Graduate Studies has move required Integrity Training workshops to an online format so students can still meet their requirements. Check the Pathways to Success website for the current schedule.
I’m not supposed to be on campus. How do I get all my approval forms signed?
The College of Graduate Studies will temporarily accept electronic versions of the Thesis and Dissertation forms with electronic signatures. Unless otherwise specified by the committee chair, the candidate is responsible for obtaining signatures on approval forms from the committee members. Approval forms can be accessed through the Thesis and Dissertation Services site. You can visit the How to Help Grad Students: Thesis and Dissertation Webcourse — Creating and Using an Adobe Acrobat Digital ID Signature for assistance. Please submit signed approval forms to email@example.com.
I have a thesis or dissertation defense scheduled soon. Do I come to campus? What do I do?
Candidates should contact their committee chair to arrange for the thesis or dissertation defense remotely through the Summer 2020 term. Zoom, Skype, and Teams are all options available to the committee. This is a temporary procedure while the campus is on remote status. If you use Zoom, do not post the meeting link on a public website. Instead, the committee chair should share the access information with the student and committee. See How to Keep Uninvited Guests Out of Your Zoom Event for information on security features and best practices.
I need to schedule a candidacy exam. What do I do?
Check with your program for updated information.
If graduate programs wish to use ProctorHub (which would also include Zoom) for their qualifying or candidacy exams, they can make a request for a special web courses section for that at: https://cdl.ucf.edu/teach/course/request-section/. A designer at CDL will then follow up to help them set it up.
