RE:	Reminder -- Deadline to Apply for Summer B/C 2009 Graduation 
Reminder -- Deadline to Make Changes to Degree Program 
Reminder - Deadline to Make Changes to Supervisory Committee 

The Graduate School will not be extending the upcoming deadline for degree applications, changes to the composition of your supervisory committee and/or degree program data.  If you intend to graduate at the end of Summer B/C Semester 2009, you must comply with the following deadlines:

(1) Verify Degree Program and Supervisory Committee: 

You are responsible for making certain that the degree program information on file at the Graduate School is correct.  This information is located in the Graduate Information Management System (GIMS). Use this link for instructions about how to access GIMS

All changes to your degree program-including degree title, college, major, and, if applicable, minor and or concentration--must be entered into GIMS by your academic unit no later than 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 1, 2009.    

All changes to your supervisory committee (including a change from thesis to nonthesis option) must be entered into GIMS by your academic unit no later than 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 1, 2009.   

If there are changes, you must contact your academic program staff person IMMEDIATELY.  Graduate School staff DO NOT make changes; only the academic unit makes changes.

If there is incorrect or missing data about your degree program or supervisory committee AFTER July 1, 2009, you will be deleted from the degree list for Summer B/C 2009. You will need to register and apply for your degree in another semester.

(2) Final Graduation Application Deadline:
