Important Notes

  • On these forms, “Program Director” refers to DCT. (i.e., the signature of the DCT is required.)
  • When forms are complete, students should make a copy for their own records and then submit to the PhD program’s administrator, currently Damaris Oquendo. The administrator will make a copy for the student’s file, and then submit the original to graduate studies. (The student should not submit to graduate studies directly.)
  • PhD students who entered the program with a Masters degree should complete all doctoral forms except those specifically related to the Masters thesis, and should indicate that they have a Masters degree on the D-1 form.
