Subject: Students Attempting to Clear Prior for Spring 2003 Graduation
Since the deadline for Fall 2002 degree candidates to complete all changes
to the Supervisory Committee including a change from thesis to nonthesis,
degree goals, etc, and requests for Transfer of Credit was WEDNESDAY,
OCTOBER 16 at 5:00 p.m., no further changes can be made for Fall 2002 degree
candidates. Students seeking to clear prior* so as not to register for their
final term in Spring 2003 must have all relevant materials submitted to the
Graduate School no later than the JANUARY 3, 2003 deadline. Students on a
fellowship or assistantship in their final term must maintain the
appropriate registration for the appointment.
Students exempt from final term registration must meet all of the following
conditions before the start of the first day of classes [January 3, 2003]:
1. Correctly registered in the preceding term [Fall 2002].
2. Completed all degree requirements, including final submission of the
dissertation, thesis, or project and the final examination report.
3. Submitted the final examination form for the nonthesis degree
4. Cleared all incompletes or other unresolved grades.
5. Filed degree application with Office of the University Registrar.
A letter of certification stating that the degree will be awarded pending
the vote of the college faculty can be prepared by the Graduate School, if
requested by the student prior to the last two weeks of the term.
Certification request forms are available at
gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/currentstudents.html and outside 106
Grinter Hall. A letter of certification is a courtesy to the student and
must be requested prior to the last two weeks of the term; it is not a
requirement for graduation.
