After downloading the form, obtain the signatures of the committee members and then submit the form to the department chair or program director. The form will be sent to the dean for review and approval. The original form is to be kept by the program and a signed copy provided to the student.

If changes need to be made to the Qualifying Examination or Dissertation Committee, the Appointment or Change of Qualifying Exam or Dissertation Committee form should be completed and submitted to the department chair or program director as soon as possible.
