MOLB Student Forms

  • By the end of his/her first semester, it is the responsibility of each new student to submit to the Molecular Biology Program Office the completed.  The form should be signed by the appropriate faculty members and student, and certified by the student's major advisor in order to obtain a grade for MOLB 597.

Graduate Student Progress Evaluation Form (pdf)

  • Beginning with the second semester, each graduate student is expected to meet with his or her committee at least twice per academic year to review progress toward the degree.  The results of these committee meetings are to be reported to the MOLB Program Secretary no later than December 1 of each fall semester and May 1 of each Spring semester, using the Graduate Student Progress Evaluation Form.  It is the student's responsibility to schedule these committee meetings and deliver the signed Graduate Student Progress Report Evaluation to the MOLB Program Secretary in a timely manner.

Final Examination: M.S. (pdf)

  • Please be aware of the deadlines for final exams, etc. for graduation as published by the Graduate School. The committee is then convened for a rigorous oral defense of the thesis.  The defense of the thesis may lead to additional questions in regard to the student's disciplinary knowledge base, but this is not a requisite of the exam.  In special cases, this exam may also serve as the qualifying/core examination for the Ph.D. degree with pre-approval of the committee and the MBP director.
