Certificate of Approval Packet

Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED)

This step is for Doctoral students only.

To complete this, you will need to sign up for the SED Survey. You will receive an email from the SED - read the instructions carefully. You will need to enter the PIN and password to complete the survey.

One of the final pages of the survey is the Email Notification Screen. Once on this screen, you will be asked to enter a primary and secondary email address. For your primary, list your USF email address. For the secondary, you can enter grad-etdmail@usf.edu. The completion email will be sent to both addresses.

Please include a copy of the Completion Certificate with your Certificate of Approval in the packet you submit to the Office of Graduate Studies.
