Head. The remaining committee members are listed at the bottom but they do not have to sign. Each person's name must be printed below their respective signature line. Students must bring the form to the Departmental Graduate Office to request the Dept. Head signature.

Preliminary Examination Checklist and Report Form- These are the forms that students must use for doing their Preliminary Exam for the Ph.D. degree. Each form should be printed out on it's own sheet of paper (not double-sided). The Checklist gets filled out by the student prior to the prelim but does not have to be submitted to OGS before the prelim. It is signed by the Chair and the Dept. Head. Each person's name must be printed below their respective signature line. Students must bring this form to the Departmental Graduate Office to request the Dept. Head signature. The Report form gets filled out by the student's Committee at the prelim. Students must bring this completed form to the Departmental Graduate Office right after their prelim so that copies can be made for our files. Then both forms get submitted together to OGS within 10 business days of the date they did their prelim.

It is important that each student complete this form for each 685 and/or 691 course that they want to take and to bring the form to the departmental Graduate Office. The Graduate Office will then put in a request to the Registrar's Office for a special section number for each student to register under. Students can not register for the generic section number listed in the class schedule-- a special section must be created by the Registrar's Office which is tied to the faculty member the student will be working with.
