As work is nearly complete for automating the process of adding and updating advisers and is underway for assigning a committee for graduate students, the Graduate Education Team is planning the next phase of process automation. Based on feedback from constituents and an evaluation of what processes have significant value to users, the team decided to retain language requirement, plan type, and minor declaration on the existing paper-based coursework planning form when adviser and committee assignments are removed. For the time being, these four components of the degree program form will remain a paper process.
Beginning in February, the team will focus on automating exam forms (e.g., doctoral preliminary written, doctoral preliminary oral, final report). An update will be provided when the priority for individual exam forms is finalized.
