Doctoral Exams Deadlines for Fall 2020 Graduation


The deadline for submission of Nominations for External Examiner for PhD candidates wanting to complete on the timeline for Fall Graduation was on Friday. There is still time for students to submit those forms, but they should come in by the end of this week, to reduce the likelihood of a delay in the invitation process.

As a reminder, the other dates candidates need to meet are as follows:

• FRIDAY, 31 JULY 2020 – Doctoral dissertation (and supporting documentation) submitted to Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for external examination
• FRIDAY, 25 SEPTEMBER 2020 – Last Day for Final Doctoral Oral Examination
• FRIDAY, 23 OCTOBER 2020 – Acceptance of final, approved doctoral dissertation by Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies

We also have an information session about the Virtual Defence process on June 16. This session will be advertised in the regular Monday updates from GradUpdate.
