Please refer to the Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (GSPA) forms website for University forms. Department forms are listed below.

You are required to meet with your committee at least once per year. Meetings are monitored by the Associate Chair; therefore, please complete the appropriate webform when setting a date for your meeting. You can use a scheduling tool, like, to schedule the meeting with your committee members.

Please note the meeting request webforms will send a confirmation email to both yourself and the Biology Graduate Office once submitted.  If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact Katelyn Fehrenbach or April Wettig.

When arranging a meeting, 30 minutes is added to the start time to allow you to set up. If you will be requiring Skype or Teleconference, then 1 hour is added to the start time to allow for set up. Therefore, the earliest you can have a meeting start (with an 8:30 am set up) is 9:00 am (if everyone will be attending in person) or 9:30a (if someone is joining remotely). Meetings must be held during regular University business hours (8:30 am-4:30 pm) to allow you access to equipment (projectors and laptops) and access to rooms.
