The student, in consultation with his or her advisor, will decide when the dissertation is ready for defense. Students may defend in the fall, spring, or summer, for a January, May, or September degree, respectively. Please see below for the steps that must be taken during the semester in which the student plans to defend.
The three "core" readers include the student's advisor and two other faculty members. Most often, the readers are the same individuals who served on the student's dissertation proposal committee. There are various forms that require original signatures from your committee members, so the earlier we know, the earlier we can be in touch with these people to start the signature process in time for various deadlines. At this time, the department strongly encourages that there be no more than 2 committee members Skyping in, so please consider this when selecting your 4th and 5th readers.
This gives the student an opportunity to incorporate any revisions suggested by the committee during the defense before the final deadline. Each semester, there is a deadline by which the student must do this. The deadlines can be found on the GSAS Academic Calendar , and are usually within a month of the beginning of a given semester. It is highly recommended that you review the GSAS guidelines at the beginning of the semester. You will find that a the dissertation must be formatted in a certain manner, which can be quite time consuming, and b they require documents with original signatures as well, so you will want to prepare these in advance of the Preliminary and Final deadlines.
The department is not aware of the details of the GSAS guidelines, so we will not be sending you reminders related to these.
English Doctorate (PhD)
It is the student's responsibility to review and meet their requirements and deadlines. Other members must be submitted for approval, so please attach their CV to your request.
Three members of the committee are designated as readers the remaining ones being auditors , and must approve the dissertation. The advisor must be part of the committee and serve as a reader. Ask Santiago for reader sheets and defense form after receiving confirmation of the approval of the Chair and DGS. It is your responsibility to make sure that the dissertation readers confirm their approval of your written thesis prior to the defense.
The readers may communicate their approval via email prior to the defense, however the signed reader sheets, must be returned to Santiago no later than the day of the defense. Once Santiago has received all three reader approvals, he can announce the defense. The announcement must precede the defense by at least one week.
