Students on Paper option should provide members of the examining committee with a copy of the paper and the prolegomenon after the advisor has approved them.
Students on the Exam option should turn in the exam and rationale to the advisor, who will then give it to the Programs Administrator for distribution to the other members of the committee.
You need to work out a schedule with your advisor. Allow members of the examining committee two weeks to read the paper. When all agree that the paper is ready for defense, schedule the oral exam.
You cannot schedule your oral exam until all course work has been completed and your Degree Program form has been approved. This must be scheduled no later than September 15 of the beginning of your third year. Additional time may be approved by your advisor and the Director of Graduate Studies.
