To obtain the dean’s signature, please bring your signature page to CSB 201 (the College of Sciences Dean’s Office). At this time, your approved committee will be verified – so if you make changes to your committee, be certain to officially file these changes with the COS Graduate Office.
If the dean is available, he will want to meet with you to sign your approval page.
If the dean is not immediately available for a signature, please leave your approval page with a staff person at the front office. You must also provide contact information so that you can be called to pick up your signed form. Given the importance of this document and the time constraints generally associated with this process, WE CANNOT DELIVER YOUR SIGNATURE PAGE TO GRADUATE STUDIES.
Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies’ Signature
Once all departmental and college signatures have been obtained, the signature page can either be hand delivered to the Graduate College or scanned and e-mailed to the thesis editor (firstname.lastname@example.org) for final approval by the Dean and Vice Provost of the College of Graduate Studies. You should only submit one final signature page for approval. This is the final location of the signature page (it will not be returned to you).
If your format review received final approval, the editor will send you an e-mail with final upload instructions. This must be done by the posted deadline. If your format review indicated that updates and another submission are needed, make certain that you resolve any issues well in advance of the final upload deadline.
