Spring 2024: Thesis, Project, Dissertation Review Registration

Please Note:

  • Students must have completed the mandatory format workshop prior to submitting their Culminating Experience.
  • Check-Ins are for students who are graduating in the current semester to submit their Culminating Experience.
  • No walk-ins will be accepted. An appointment is required.

Disclaimer: Ample appointment slots have been allocated to accommodate all graduating students. However, students are encouraged to sign up for appointments early in the submission cycle. Failure to sign up for an appointment, and/or show up to an appointment may delay a student's degree completion timeline.

Students should be advised that if they cancel an appointment once the submission period begins, OGS cannot guarantee another appointment will be available, and thus, students may have to move their graduation date and submit during the next submission cycle.
