All students must bring a Certificate of Defense Approval form to the defense for signing by each committee member. This form is your proof that you successfully defended your thesis or dissertation. Please download, fill out the form, and bring the completed form to the defense for your committee members to sign after your successful defense. The completed form must be submitted to the Graduate School with the two other final forms required to complete your ETD submission after you have uploaded a final PDF to the ETD database. Only original signatures on the form will be accepted by the Graduate School.
