Forms you will need

Most of the petitions and other forms you will use, along with information on graduation, are located on the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies (OGAPS) forms webpage. You will submit most forms online.

Note: You must resend or update any forms when they expire, so keep records of the dates and time limits of each form.

Your final project/report 

PETE 692 is your professional written report. It is also 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:

  • Talking with your Chair about your topic and deciding on your topic the semester before you take PETE 692, due to deadline dates
  • Taking PETE 692 as your last class, because you may have to do a lot of research
  • Starting early - Keep checking the the OGAPS site for calendars/deadlines at the beginning of your last semester
  • Reading our Graduation page for more information
