The dissertation proposal is a comprehensive statement on the extent and nature of the student’s dissertation research interests.
After the hearing, a memorandum listing the changes to be made will be written and submitted with the signed proposal cover sheet and a copy of the proposal itself to the Doctoral Programs Officer.
Review and approval of the dissertation proposal occurs normally during the third year.
After submitting the signed dissertation proposal cover sheet to the Doctoral Programs Officer indicating approval (see above), students can submit a HELP SU ticket online at helpsu.to request the credit.
When submitting the help ticket, the following should be selected from the drop-down menus for HELP SU: : (whatever system is used by the student, e.g., Windows XP.) The help ticket will be routed to the GSE's IT Group for processing; they will in turn notify the student via email when the credit is available.
