Progress Report

Students who have passed their preliminary exams are required to meet annually with their Thesis Committee to discuss their progress and receive advice and suggestions from their committee. Each year, these meetings must be scheduled by May 31 and completed by August 31. Failure to do so may result in a hold being placed on the student’s registration.  Prior to the meeting, students should write a 1-2 page summary of aims that they accomplished, results found, and future plans.  This summary should be distributed to the committee 2 days prior to the meeting.  At the actual meeting, a Progress Report form should be completed, signed by the Thesis Committee members and submitted to the Biophysics Office.  A copy of the summary should also be turned into the Biophysics Office.
