Due Annually: December 15th, 2019- Can be signed during milestone meetings.
The annual progress report form must be completed each year and provided to your committee
during your annual committee meeting. It is similar to a CV—you create one form and
add to it as your progress through the program. Please make sure to keep an editable
word document for yourself, which you can update annually.
You must note sufficient reason to change your committee. One example is that a faculty
member is leaving the university. You must note this reason on the form, and the department
and college must approve the change. Changes to your committee should only be made
when absolutely necessary and are not allowed during your semester of graduation.
