Summer comps will be held on Saturday, July 9, in the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences, Room 152, from 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. The room was chosen for its comfort in providing air conditioning, in anticipation of a hot summer day. While you may bring drinks and snacks, you will not be able to take any food items with you into the classroom. Dr. Gale Eaton will be proctoring the exam.

Students who are planning to graduate in August must submit a Nomination for Graduation form which can be found on the GSLIS Sakai site. It must be clearly filled out and returned to the GSLIS Student Affairs Office prior to the deadline of Friday, May 20, 2011. After submitting the form, you are then placed on our list for taking the comps.

Please remember that you also must have successfully completed all the courses listed on your approved Program of Study. If you have diverted from your original plan of study, you must contact your advisor to fill out a new form.

If you are on campus, you are welcome to stop into the Student Affairs Office to drop off your Nomination for Graduation form. If mailing, please use the following address:
