Biology Comprehensive Exam Meeting Request Form

Note: Students must submit their request a minimum of 7 weeks before the meeting date.

Comprehensive exam: 2 to 3 hours, depending on number of examiners (book 3 hrs, just in case)

When arranging a meeting, 30 minutes is added to the start time to allow for set up. If Skype or Teleconference will be required, then one hour is added to the start time to allow for set up. Therefore, the earliest a meeting can start is 9:00a (with an 8:30a set up and everyone attending in person) or 9:30a (with an 8:30a set up and one member joining remotely). Meetings must be held during regular University business hours (8:30a-4:30p) to allow access to equipment, access to rooms, and support.
The proposed meeting date and time must have been previously approved by your committee members.
Your topic list must have been received no later than 8 weeks before your meeting date.
Please list the topics you received from your supervisor.
Please note, you can only have one type of equipment, and one committee member physically absent; your supervisor(s) should be present at your meeting. If you select remote or hybrid and don't need the owl, the student and supervisor are in charge of setting up the call via MS teams.
Email confirmation will be sent out once all meeting details have been finalized. You will also receive confirmation that this form was submitted. Please contact the Biology Graduate Office if you have any questions.
