Thesis defense instructions

Please note: there is a "blackout period" for defences for the Spring 2017 terms as follows:

Thesis Defence Blackout – Spring term 2017:  Monday, August 21 - Friday, September 1

There will be no MSc or PhD thesis defences during this period - only UWSpace final uploads are acceptable.

This blackout period is necessary and is supported by the Graduate Studies Office due to the fact that there are very few faculty members available during this period of time.
