I have a thesis or dissertation defense scheduled soon. Do I come to campus? What do I do?


Candidates should contact their committee chair to arrange for the thesis or dissertation defense remotely through the summer 2020 term. Zoom, Skype, and Teams are all options available to the committee. This is a temporary procedure while the campus is on remote status. If you use Zoom, do not post the meeting link on a public website. Instead, the committee chair should share the access information with the student and committee. See How to Keep Uninvited Guests Out of Your Zoom Event for information on security features and best practices.
