 Instruction on scheduling a proposal or final defense

Proposals and final theses/dissertations must be provided to committee members at least 14 days in advance of the defense.

All proposal defenses should be advertised at least 10 days beforehand by sending a flyer to your advisor, committee members, and Jay Lyn Martin (jaylyn@clemson.edu). Jay Lyn will forward it to the faculty and graduate students.

All final defenses should be announced at least 10 days beforehand by filling out this form http://www.clemson.edu/graduate/calendar/defense-form.html and sending an email to your advisor, committee members, and Jay Lyn Martin (jaylyn@clemson.edu). Jay Lyn will forward it to the faculty and graduate students.

Further instructions are in the most recent Graduate Student Guide in sections VII and VIII.

Directions & Suggestions for Binding of Thesis/Dissertation

In addition to the electronic copy of your thesis/dissertation document required by the Graduate School, the Microbiology and Biological Sciences graduate degree programs require one (1) bound copy of your thesis/dissertation paid for by the Department for the departmental library collection of theses/dissertations located in 229 Long Hall. A signature page from your advisory committee (not available in the electronic copy) can be included in the bound copy, and there is an option to print your figures in color. The department will pay for up to two (2) copies (one for the program, one for the student) to be bound.  Please see or email Jay Lyn Martin (jaylyn@clemson.edu) for instructions.
