Graduate Student Welcome and Review of Requirements
August 24, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
All grad students are required to attend this talk and discussion, which will introduce new grad students and clarify the department’s expectations and requirements for new and continuing students.
First, new graduate students starting this semester will be introduced briefly. After that, there will be a talk and discussion intended to help clarify requirements and expectations for both new and continuing graduate students. Many of these requirements and expectations have specific ramifications for the completion of degree or the continuation of financial support. Forms submitted at the various stages in order to document completion of requirements will also be discussed with the intent of helping students avoid complications on the way to their degree.
All full-time physics and astronomy graduate students are required to attend. Faculty are welcome to attend if they have questions or would like more information about the structure or implementation of the graduate curriculum.
