Report of Final Examination (Defense)

In cooperation with your research advisor, schedule your oral defense with your committee and program chair; notify the CGHS Office of the date, time, title, and location of your defense. The defense must be scheduled early enough to allow you time to make revisions, have them reviewed by your committee, and get original signatures on your Approval page. Be sure to allow for committee members who are out of town, at conferences, on vacation, etc.

Distribute your thesis/dissertation to every member of your committee for review.

Electronic thesis/dissertation format review instructions.

Take the Report of Final Examination form to your defense to obtain signatures from your committee.

After you have successfully defended, make an appointment with the CGHS Office to discuss graduation requirements and to complete paperwork.

Note for students at St. Jude: After you have successfully defended your dissertation, you must also make an appointment for an exit interview with the Director of Academic Programs (495-2750).

On or before the thesis/dissertation deadline, deliver one signed copy of the "Report of Final Examination" form with original signatures of your committee to the CGHS Office. All committee members must have signed. Note: the form can be taken or mailed to the CGHS Office. Faxes or e-mailed copies are not permitted.
