English Graduate Handbook


Degree Program Forms (89a and 89b)
Petition Form
Oral Examination Committee Substitution (available soon)
Advisor Substitution (available soon)

Graduate students are required to file the Degree Program Transmittal and Degree Program forms (Gs 89a and Gs 89b) for approval by the Graduate School by the time they have completed 10 semester credits of course work; for most students, this occurs at the end of the second term of enrollment, typically at the end of Spring semester. Failure to file or have the program approved will result in the student's being prevented from registering for classes the following term.

The first step in filing the program is compiling the courses. Draft a proposed program for your adviser's approval, listing the courses already taken and the courses you intend to take to complete your program. 

Next, select committee members and verify that they are willing to serve and will be available at the time of your examination. The English program requires 3 committee members and one examiner from the related field or minor. The internal related field representative, if any, may not serve as Chair or committee member for the major field.
