RE: Deadline - Final Examination Data entered in GIMS December 2, 2011.
In accordance with Graduate Council policy, all graduate degree programs require a final culminating experience. For some degree candidates, this is the final defense of your thesis or dissertation. For others, this may be the completion of a project, a capstone course, a traditional examination, or other mechanism determined by your academic unit. Regardless of the format, all degree candidates must satisfy this milestone.
Graduating students are responsible for verifying final examination data in GIMS (Graduate Information Management System)
1. Log in to ISIS: http://www.isis.ufl.edu 2. Select **Graduate Student Info** from the "My Resources" menu on the right 3. Select **Grad School Info Systems (GIMS) from the menu on the right 4. Login to GIMS, by clicking on the "Continue to Gatorlink authentication" link and using your Gatorlink ID and password.
5. Find/select the degree program for which you have applied to graduate this semester 6. Scroll down to the "Final Exam" field; make sure the date (mm/dd/yyyy) is in the Final Exam Field. To be valid, the exam date must occur during the Summer 2011 or the Fall 2011 term (but no later that the Fall 2011 Final Exam deadline).
7. If your final exam will take place between now and December 2, 2011, it is vital that the data is entered before 5:00 p.m. on December 2, 2011.
IF THE FINAL EXAM DATE IS MISSING, INCORRECT OR OUTSIDE THE DATE RANGE, CONTACT YOUR ACADEMIC UNIT/DEPARTMENT FOR ASSISTANCE IMMEDIATELY!!!
If you are not able to meet the December 2, 2011 deadline, please plan on enrolling and applying for a degree award in a future term.
