Problems with course videos

As of fall 2017 we have been using a new system called MEDIASITE. While the IT support group and MEDIASITE folks have worked out many glitches, some could still occur.

If you notice any technical problems with the courses, such as sound issues, video issues, or poor resolution, please send an email to and copy us on it

Forms you will need

For petitions, announcement for final exam, other type forms, and information on graduation is located on the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies website. Most forms are submitted online.

Any forms MUST be resent or updated if and when they expire.

Your final project/report 

PETE 692 is your professional written report. It is your final report (also called your Final Exam by OGAPS) and has a deadline of mid-semester.

You will work one-on-one with the Chair (Advisor) of your committee. We suggest:

  • Discussing a topic with your Chair the semester before you take it, due to deadline dates
  • Taking PETE 692 as your last class, because there may be a lot of research involved
  • Starting early - monitor for calendars/deadlines at the beginning of your last semester
  • Reading our Graduation page for more information
