ResearchWorks Archive is the University of Washington’s digital repository (also known as “institutional repository”) for disseminating scholarly work. ResearchWorks Archive can accept any digital file format or content (examples include numerical datasets, photographs and diagrams, working papers, technical reports, pre-prints and post-prints of published articles). However, materials must contain sufficient metadata, very large files require individual consultations, and copyright restrictions may apply. No special software is needed to submit materials.
In addition, the repository software creates persistent URLs that will not change over time. If a DOI or ARK is required, we can provide that via the university subscription to DataCite . The Libraries encourages contributions from all communities across the three campuses.
How do I get started?
First-time depositors should:
1. Check the list of existing ResearchWorks Communities to determine whether any of them are appropriate for your work.
2. Either contact the ResearchWorks team to be assigned permissions to self-deposit, or fill out a mediated deposit form .
Who may deposit their scholarly materials into the Archive?
Faculty, researchers and students of the University of Washington may deposit materials. Student materials that are acceptable for the archive include honors theses, dissertations and theses produced as part of a graduate program and other high quality research activities. Researchers may place their works in the Archive provided they have secured permission from the rights-holder.
How is ResearchWorks at the University of Washington organized?
The repository is organized into Communities (colleges, schools, research centers, or other groups). Sub-communities for departments can be established in the college or school community and Collections, such as e-Prints can be set up within sub-communities.
Colleges, Schools, Departments and Research Centers can easily present their work to prospective students, faculty, granting institutions, as well as colleagues and other interested individuals around the world resulting in higher visibility for your work. In addition, each College, School, Department and Research Center primary page can be enhanced with text, logos, and links to departmental websites.

Policy Topic: Dissertation
Final examination: dissertation defense.
A Final Examination may be scheduled if: (a) a student passed a General Examination in a previous quarter; (b) a reading committee is officially established with the Graduate School; (c) the reading committee has read an entire draft of the dissertation and; (d) the entire supervisory committee has agreed that the student is prepared and has approved the student to schedule a Final Examination. At least four members of a supervisory committee (including the Chair, Graduate School Representative, and one additional Graduate Faculty member) must be present at the examination.
- What if a committee member does not show up for the exam?
- Instructions for Virtual Doctoral Examinations
If the Final Examination is satisfactory, the supervisory committee members who participate at the examination sign the committee signature form and return it to the student’s graduate program by the last day of the quarter (last day of finals week). Any members of a supervisory committee who participate at an examination but do not agree with the majority opinion are encouraged to submit a minority report to the Dean of the Graduate School. If an examination is unsatisfactory, a supervisory committee may recommend that the Dean of the Graduate School permit a second examination after a period of additional study.
Registration as a graduate student is required the quarter that a Final Examination is taken AND the quarter the dissertation is submitted. The degree is conferred the quarter in which the student’s dissertation is accepted by the Graduate School.
A candidate certificate and the doctoral degree may not be awarded the same quarter.
Graduate School Representative (GSR) Eligibility
In order to serve as a Graduate School Representative (GSR), the proposed candidate:
- Must be a Graduate Faculty member with an endorsement to chair (check Graduate Faculty Locator ).
- Must be clear of any conflicts of interest (see below). The GSR is responsible for ensuring that no such conflicts of interest, or appearance of conflicts of interest, exist, and must attest to this upon request.
Yes = eligible to serve No = not eligible to serve
- Budgetary relationships, personal relationships, or research and/or publication relationships between the GSR and either the student or the committee chair are examples of possible conflicts of interest.
Policy 4.2: Supervisory Committee for Graduate Students
This section outlines the policy for the supervisory committee of master’s students and doctoral students.
As a general principle, each student working toward a graduate degree at the University of Washington is guided by a faculty supervisory committee. This committee serves an important evaluative and mentoring function for the student throughout the student’s graduate career.
Questions about the appointment and functions of supervisory committees for master’s or doctoral students or concerns about the proceedings of an exam should be directed to the Graduate School’s Graduate Enrollment Management Services office.
4.2.1 The Master’s Supervisory Committee
Appointment of a supervisory committee for students aspiring to the Master’s degree is determined by the Graduate Faculty in the degree-offering unit or program. The Graduate Program Coordinator, in consultation with the student and appropriate faculty members, appoints a committee of two to four members. The Chair and at least one-half of the total membership must be members of the graduate faculty.
For any thesis project that may include human or animal subjects, the GPC or GPA must advise the student of the need to comply with the University of Washington Human Subjects Division and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee’s requirements, as appropriate, and the student and committee chair must complete the Use Of Human And Animal Subjects For UW Graduate Student Theses And Dissertations form.
4.2.2 The Doctoral Supervisory Committee other than Practice Doctorates
The appointment of a doctoral supervisory committee indicates that the Graduate Faculty in the student’s field find the student’s background and achievement a sufficient basis for progression to the next stage of a program of doctoral study and research.
Doctoral supervisory committee member responsibilities include the approval of a course of study which will fulfill the general course requirements of the student’s major and supporting fields, conducting the student’s General Examination and, when appropriate, recommending advancement to Candidacy.
The doctoral supervisory committee approves the Candidate’s dissertation proposal and guides the student in carrying out appropriate research for the dissertation. The Graduate School does not stipulate the content of the dissertation; guidance on the dissertation is the responsibility of the supervisory committee.
For doctoral committee responsibilities for the General Exam and Final Exam, see Policy 1.1.4 .
126.96.36.199 Timeline and Process
- In order to allow time to identify a suitable Graduate School Representative (GSR), it is suggested that the doctoral supervisory committee be established at least four months prior to the intended date of the General Examination.
- The appointment of a committee is initiated by the Graduate Program Coordinator (GPC) after consultation with appropriate Graduate Faculty members in the student’s field and with the student.
- The GPC recommends members of the supervisory committee to the Dean of The Graduate School by entering this information into MyGradProgram (MGP).
- For any dissertation project that may include human or animal subjects, the GPC or GPA must advise the student of the need to comply with the University of Washington Human Subjects Division and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee’s requirements, as appropriate, and the student and committee chair must complete the Use Of Human And Animal Subjects For UW Graduate Student Theses And Dissertations form.
188.8.131.52 Committee Composition
- The doctoral supervisory committee consists of a minimum of four members, at least three of whom (including one Chair and the GSR) must be members of the Graduate Faculty with an endorsement to chair doctoral committees.
- A majority of the members must be members of the Graduate Faculty.
- The GSR must be a productive scholar in the GSR’s own research area that may differ from that of the student’s dissertation project.
- The members outside the GSR must be identified by the student’s appointing department or program as productive scholars in the student’s major field and/or subfields.
184.108.40.206 The Committee Chair
- The Chair(s) of a committee must be able and willing to assume principal responsibility for advising the student. In addition, the Chair(s) should have adequate time available for this work and should expect to be accessible to the student.
- Emeritus/a and affiliate faculty may serve as Chair(s) if the above conditions are met.
- If a committee has Co-Chairs, both serve with equal importance on a student’s supervisory committee and equally share the responsibility for the student’s progress. In the case of Co-Chairs, the first Co-Chair must have a Graduate Faculty appointment with doctoral endorsement. The second Co-Chair may be appointed without Graduate Faculty status if the individual has a qualified UW faculty appointment. Qualified faculty appointments in this case are those appointments eligible for continuous or five-year graduate faculty roles. A Co-Chair without qualified UW faculty appointment may be appointed only by petition to the Dean of the Graduate School or the Dean’s designee.
220.127.116.11 The Role of the Graduate School Representative (GSR)
The GSR represents the broad interests of the Graduate School with respect to high standards of scholarly performance. The GSR is a voting member of the dissertation supervisory committee, and as such provides an important service function to the Graduate School and the University.
In all cases, the GSR must meet the following Graduate School requirements:
- attest to the validity of examinations and indicate approval of the process by which examinations are conducted;
- ensure that the student is treated in an unbiased manner; and
- represent the Graduate School in ensuring university-wide standards of scholarly performance.
In addition, any graduate program may choose to define the role of the GSR to include one or both of the following:
- ensure that the student’s mastery of the subject matter is broad and comprehensive;
- provide additional support for the student as the student navigates the exam and dissertation process.
If a graduate program sets additional expectations for the GSR beyond the Graduate School requirements, the graduate program must clearly articulate these expectations, and the Graduate Program Coordinator (GPC) or designee must communicate them in writing to all parties (student, chair, committee members, GSR) upon appointment of the GSR. The minimum role of the GSR must be defined consistently across all committees in the graduate program.
The GSR’s signature on the committee signature form affirming the decision of the committee communicates to the Dean of the Graduate School that the Graduate School and program-level responsibilities have been met.
18.104.22.168 Graduate School Representative (GSR) Eligibility
- As with all doctoral supervisory committee members, the GSR is proposed to the Graduate School by the Graduate Program Coordinator in the student’s degree-offering unit and must be a member of the Graduate Faculty with an endorsement to Chair.
- Faculty members with a primary, joint, or affiliate appointment in the student’s degree-offering unit or the committee chair’s department are not eligible to serve as the GSR.
- It is vital that a conflict of interest in the selection of the GSR be avoided. Budgetary relationships, personal relationships, or research and/or publication relationships between the GSR and either the student or the committee chair are examples of possible conflicts of interest. (See GSR Eligibility for more information.) The GSR is responsible for ensuring that no such conflicts of interest, or appearance of conflicts of interest, exist, and must attest to this upon request.
22.214.171.124 Reading Committee Timeline and Composition
- After the General Examination, the Graduate Program Coordinator informs the Dean of The Graduate School of at least three members of the supervisory committee who will serve on the reading committee.
- At least one of the members of the reading committee must hold an endorsement to chair doctoral committees. The reading committee is appointed to read and approve the dissertation.
126.96.36.199 Function of the Reading Committee
It is the responsibility of the reading committee to:
- Ensure that the dissertation is a significant contribution to knowledge and is an acceptable piece of scholarly writing.
- Determine the appropriateness of a candidate’s dissertation as a basis for issuing the Committee Signature Form for a Final Examination.
4.2.3 The Practice Doctorate Supervisory Committee
The appointment of a practice doctoral supervisory committee indicates that the Graduate Faculty in the student’s field finds the student’s background and achievement a sufficient basis for progression in the doctoral program.
Responsibilities of the practice doctoral supervisory committee include: approval of the student’s program of study; criteria for progression, which may include a general examination, certification, or other requirements set by the graduate program; approval and oversight of the student’s project proposal; and approval of the completed project.
188.8.131.52 Timeline and Process
The practice doctoral supervisory committee should be established as soon as possible during the student’s training. The Graduate Program Coordinator initiates the appointment of the committee after consultation with appropriate Graduate Faculty members in the student’s field and with the student. The Graduate Program Coordinator recommends members of the supervisory committee to the Dean of The Graduate School by entering this information into MyGrad Program.
184.108.40.206 Committee Composition
The practice doctoral supervisory committee consists of a minimum of three members. At least two committee members, including the Chair, must be members of the Graduate Faculty with an endorsement to chair doctoral committees, and at least half of the total number must be members of the Graduate Faculty. The following applies to all practice doctoral supervisory committees:
- Any committee members who are not Graduate Faculty must be identified by the student’s appointing department or program as productive scholars or practitioners in the student’s major field and/or subfields.
- Co-chairs may be appointed when both serve with equal importance on a student’s supervisory committee and equally share the responsibility for the student’s progress. If co-chairs are appointed, each must be a member of the Graduate Faculty with endorsement to chair.
- The Chair or Co-chairs of a committee must be able and willing to assume principal responsibility for advising the student. In addition, the Chair or Co-chairs should have adequate time available for this work and should expect to be accessible to the student. Emeritus faculty may serve as a Chair if the above conditions are met.
- A Graduate School Representative (GSR) is not required.

Policy 4.2 revised October 2023
Policy 1.1: Graduate Degree Requirements
Policy 1.1 describes general policies on minimum degree requirements and allowable credits for graduate degrees. Degree requirements for specific graduate programs are managed by that program and may be in excess of the minimum requirements described here.
A graduate degree program consists of a coherent body of study beyond the baccalaureate degree that includes a meaningful progression of coursework and, for most programs, includes a final culminating experience or an integrated experience across the curriculum. Examples of culminating experiences include a thesis, dissertation or other creative work, capstone project, comprehensive examination, or supervised field experience. Integrated learning experiences connect concepts and experiences across the curriculum to form a meaningful whole. If included as part of the degree requirements, a program may offer multiple culminating experience options, provided that the overall level of achievement for the degree remains the same. See Policies 1.1.2 , 1.1.3 , 1.1.4 , and 1.1.5 for requirements specific to each degree type.
The Graduate School defines minimum degree requirements for all University of Washington graduate programs. Individual graduate programs may have degree requirements that exceed the Graduate School minimum requirements.
The Graduate Faculty with oversight of a graduate program have primary responsibility for assuring that students recommended for graduation have satisfactorily fulfilled the degree requirements for the program in which they are enrolled.
A student must satisfy the requirements for the degree that are in force at the time the degree is to be awarded. Exceptions may be made for programs that have undergone changes to degree requirements.
1.1.1 Requirements Applying to All Graduate Degree Programs
- Credits applied towards graduate degree requirements must include University of Washington coursework of (1) at least 18 credits at the 500 level and above; and (2) at least 18 graded credits of 400- and 500-level coursework, excluding 499 and transfer credit.
- For CR/NC courses, submission of a CR grade indicates that the student has met course expectations at a level such that the course may be applied towards graduate degree requirements.
- For S/NS courses, an S grade indicates that the student has met course expectations at a level such that the course may be applied towards graduate degree requirements. A graduate program may restrict S courses from counting towards program requirements.
- Graduate degree requirements normally consist primarily of graduate-level coursework at the 500 level. Courses at the 300 level and 400 level may be part of a student’s course of study and applied toward graduate degree requirements when acceptable to the student’s graduate program and the Graduate School. Coursework at the 300 level may not be applied towards the minimum 18 graded credits and may not be applied towards more than one-third of total degree requirements, except as previously approved by the Graduate School.
- A student must be registered for credit the quarter in which any required exam or presentation occurs. A student must maintain registration as a full-time or part-time graduate student for the quarter the degree or certificate is conferred.
- A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 is required to earn a graduate degree, and a minimum of 2.7 is required in each course that is counted toward graduate degree requirements. Courses at the 300 level are not included in the calculation of grade-point average (GPA).
- With the approval of a student’s graduate program and the Graduate School, up to 6 credits of 400-level or 500-level coursework, taken as a senior while an undergraduate at the University of Washington, may be applied towards graduate degree requirements.
- With the approval of a student’s graduate program, a restricted amount of Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) credit may be applied towards degree requirements, as described in Policy 3.3 .
- Credit taken while enrolled as a non-matriculated (NM) student or while matriculated as a post-baccalaureate student at the University of Washington may not be applied towards graduate degree requirements. Credit by independent study or advanced credit examination is not transferable.
1.1.2 The Master’s Degree
In addition to the requirements listed under Policy 1.1.1 that apply to all graduate degree programs:
- Master’s degree requirements must include a minimum of 36 credits. A master’s program may require more than this minimum.
- A student must complete all work for the master’s degree within six years from the time of first enrollment. Periods spent on leave or out of status are included in these limits. Exceptions to time to degree will be made at the program level.
- A master’s program generally should require a final culminating or integrated experience, with the exception of applied professional programs where a coursework-only program can be thoroughly justified in the program proposal (e.g., a coursework-only program is the standard in the field).
126.96.36.199 Coursework that may be applied towards master’s degree requirements
A maximum of 6 quarter credits of graduate-level coursework taken at another recognized academic institution may be transferred and apply to UW master’s degree requirements, when acceptable to the graduate program and the Graduate School.
No more than 12 credits derived from any combination of GNM credits and transfer credits may be applied towards the total degree requirements.
188.8.131.52 Thesis Programs
The master’s thesis provides evidence of the graduate student’s ability to carry out independent investigation and to present the results in clear and systemic form.
A thesis program must include a minimum of 9 thesis credits (700).
Thesis credits (700) will not apply to requirements for a non-thesis master’s degree.
See Policy 4.2.1 for any thesis that will include human or animal subjects.
184.108.40.206 Final Examination
If a master’s program requires a final examination, it may be either oral or written. A majority of the supervisory committee must approve for satisfactory completion, and all members of the supervisory committee must certify examination results. If the examination is not satisfactory, the committee may recommend to the Dean of the Graduate School that the student be allowed to take another examination after a period of further study.
1.1.3 The Educational Specialist Degree
- Educational specialist degree requirements must include a minimum of 54 credits. An educational specialist program may require more than this minimum.
- Degree requirements must include at least 6 credits of capstone experience (course number 750).
- A student must complete all work for the educational specialist degree within six years from the time of first enrollment. Periods spent on leave or out of status are included in these limits. Exceptions to time to degree will be made at the program level.
220.127.116.11 Coursework that may be applied towards educational specialist degree requirements
A maximum of 6 quarter credits of graduate-level coursework taken at another recognized academic institution may be transferred and apply to UW degree requirements, when acceptable to the graduate program and the Graduate School.
1.1.4 The Doctoral Degree other than Practice Doctorates
In addition to the requirements listed under Policy 1.1.1 that apply to all graduate degree programs, the following requirements apply to all doctoral degrees other than practice doctorates. For practice doctorate requirements, see Policy 1.1.5 . For the composition and responsibility of the doctoral supervisory committee, see Policy 4.2 .
- Doctoral degree requirements must include a minimum of 90 credits beyond the baccalaureate. A doctoral degree program may require more than this minimum.
- Doctoral programs require a culminating experience, with PhD programs requiring original research reflected in the dissertation.
- All work applied to the doctoral degree must be completed within ten years, including credits counted from a master’s degree at UW. Periods spent on leave or out of status are included in these limits. Exceptions to time to degree will be made at the program level.
18.104.22.168 General Examination
The student must successfully pass a general examination.
Prior to the General Examination:
- At least 18 credits of coursework at the 500 level and above must be completed prior to scheduling the general examination.
- At least 18 graded credits of 400- and 500-level coursework, excluding 499, must be completed prior to scheduling the general examination.
- At least 60 credits must be completed before taking the general exam. Some of these credits may be taken the same quarter of the exam.
- All members of the supervisory committee must approve that the student’s background of study and preparation is sufficient to schedule the General Examination.
The General Examination:
- Registration as a graduate student is required the quarter that the General Examination is taken.
- At least four members of the committee (including the Chair(s), GSR, and one additional Graduate Faculty member) must be physically or virtually present at the General Examination.
- If the General Examination is satisfactory, the supervisory committee members who participate at the examination sign the committee signature form.
- If an examination is unsatisfactory, a supervisory committee may recommend that the Dean of the Graduate School permit up to a maximum of two additional reexaminations after a period of additional study.
- Any members of a supervisory committee who do not agree with the majority opinion are encouraged to submit a minority report to the Dean of the Graduate School.
22.214.171.124 Advancement to Candidacy
Advancement to Candidacy indicates successful completion of the general examination and all other requirements for the doctoral degree except satisfactory completion of the dissertation and the final examination. This is recognized for the Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Musical Arts, and Doctor of Education degrees that are not practice doctorates. See also Scholastic Regulations Chapter 114.7.
Requirements must include preparation of and acceptance by the Dean of the Graduate School of a dissertation that is a significant contribution to knowledge and clearly indicates training in research.
The dissertation must be written in the English language. If there are circumstances that warrant a dissertation in another language, the program may petition the Graduate School.
The student must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 27 credits of dissertation (800) over a period of at least three quarters, with at least one quarter occurring after the general examination.
With the exception of summer quarter, students are limited to a maximum of 10 credits per quarter of dissertation (800).
See Policy 4.2.3 for any dissertation that will include human or animal subjects.
126.96.36.199 Final Examination
The student must pass a final examination usually devoted to the dissertation and the field with which it is concerned.
- When the reading committee has read a draft of the entire dissertation and the members of the doctoral supervisory committee agree that the Candidate is prepared to take the Final Examination, all members of the doctoral supervisory committee must give the student approval to schedule the Final Examination.
- The General Examination and Final Examination cannot occur during the same quarter.
- At least four members of the committee (including the Chair(s), GSR, and one additional Graduate Faculty member) must be physically or virtually present at the and Final Examination.
- At the Final Examination the dissertation is evaluated and, if a majority of the supervisory committee members in attendance agree that the evaluation is positive, the recommendation is made to the Dean of the Graduate School (via the committee signature form) that the degree be awarded.
- If members of the doctoral supervisory committee do not agree with the majority recommendation concerning the examination, the minority report portion of the committee signature form must be used.
188.8.131.52 Coursework that may be applied towards doctoral degree requirements
With the approval of the graduate program and the Graduate School, a master’s degree in a relevant field of study from an accredited institution may substitute for up to 30 of the required 90 credits. No other transfer credits are allowed for doctoral programs.
With the approval of the graduate program, any number of credits applied to a UW master’s degree in the same program may be counted towards doctoral degree requirements.
1.1.5 The Practice Doctoral Degree
A practice doctorate is intended as preparation for professional practice at the frontiers of existing knowledge (see Policy 1.7.2 ). A practice doctorate involves extensive coursework and a culminating project/capstone that is in lieu of a traditional PhD dissertation. The nature of this project/capstone may be specific to each program (e.g., project, practicum, portfolio, applied dissertation, clinical work, etc.). The project/capstone is not filed with the Graduate School.
In addition to the requirements listed under Policy 1.1.1 that apply to all graduate degree programs, the following requirements apply to all practice doctorates. For the composition and responsibility of the practice doctoral supervisory committee, see Policy 4.2 .
- Practice doctoral degree requirements must include a minimum of 90 credits beyond the baccalaureate.
- The practice doctorate requires successful completion of 12 credits of project or capstone credit (801 Practice Doctorate Project/Capstone).
It is the responsibility of the program to establish appropriate milestones towards the degree. Two milestones are formally recognized by the Graduate School:
- admission to the program
- approval of the final project/capstone (through the committee signature form)
There is no formally recognized candidacy status for practice doctoral students. Requiring a general exam or other milestones is at the discretion of the program and is not reported to the Graduate School.
After the practice doctoral supervisory committee has evaluated the final project/capstone, if a majority of the supervisory committee members agree that the evaluation is positive, the recommendation is made to the Dean of The Graduate School (via the committee signature form) that the degree be awarded. If members of the practice doctoral supervisory committee do not agree with the majority recommendation, the minority report portion of the committee signature form must be used.
184.108.40.206 Coursework that may be applied towards practice doctoral degree requirements
With the approval of the graduate program and the Graduate School, a Ph.D. or a master’s degree in a relevant field of study from an accredited institution may substitute for up to 30 of the required 90 credits.
A maximum of 10 quarter credits of graduate-level coursework taken at another recognized academic institution may be transferred and apply to UW practice doctorate degree requirements, when acceptable to the graduate program and the Graduate School.
No more than 30 credits derived from any combination of GNM, transfer, and substituted credits may be applied towards the total degree requirements.
When a Ph.D. and practice doctorate are earned concurrently, departments may petition the Graduate School to count 30 specified credits toward the total minimum credit count of each degree, for a total minimum of 150 credits. Core credits for either degree, as (defined as part of the core curriculum by the graduate program) may not be included in these 30 credits applied to both degrees, and this option may not be used on top of previously waived credits for either degree. It is the responsibility of each unit to assure that the credits applied toward its degree are relevant to that degree. The student must meet Graduate School minimum requirements (18 credits 500 level and above, 18 numerically graded 400/500 level credits) for each degree.

Students who have achieved candidacy and are working on a thesis or dissertation are expected to comply with the enrollment requirements as set forth in the sections entitled Course Load and Continuous Enrollment . Advice or assistance from a member of the faculty in the preparation of the thesis or dissertation should not be expected unless the student is officially enrolled.
Students are required to be continuously enrolled (i.e., each Fall and Spring semester), including the semester in which the thesis or dissertation is submitted to, and accepted by, the university. Failure to enroll in thesis/dissertation courses may delay graduation and may result in the loss of financial assistance and other privileges. A student not enrolled in a Fall or Spring term is not eligible for a teaching or research assistantship during that term. The student should consult the individual college requirements regarding summer registration for thesis or dissertation credit hours.
Students may enroll in absentia for thesis/dissertation courses if arrangements are made through the department of their major at least two weeks before the registration period. Registration for all other students must be completed in the prescribed manner during the announced registration period. The thesis or dissertation course is considered part of a student’s current course load.
The thesis/dissertation committee (also called advisory committee) advises the student on research and writing of the thesis /dissertation, conducts the final oral examination (as required by the program) and approves the final version of the thesis/dissertation. A thesis/dissertation committee should include at least three members. The thesis/dissertation committee must have members from the student’s graduate program/academic unit. It may have additional members that are serving as an external committee member. The majority of members must be currently active in the scholarship of the field.
One committee member will serve as the chair of the thesis/dissertation committee. In some cases, two committee members may be appointed as co-chairs and will share the chair responsibilities.
If a student’s thesis/dissertation chair is a faculty member whose primary appointment is not in the graduate program offering the degree, then they must receive approval from the graduate program director/department chair to serve as a co-chair with a faculty member from the program also serving as co-chair. If the academic unit/graduate program has specified departmental or college policies regarding thesis/dissertation committee members, the student will follow the specified procedures of the graduate program/academic unit as long as they do not conflict with the policy outlined here.
The thesis/dissertation chair (or co-chairs) is (are) the student’s mentor(s) and guide(s) through the degree program. Students should consult the departmental policy regarding the appropriate number of thesis/dissertation committee members, the process for the selection of the committee members and the process to request changes in the committee membership. If the chair of a student’s dissertation committee leaves the University and the student is near completion of the degree and wants the chair to continue to serve in this role, the student, in consultation with the graduate program director and committee members, should ask a current member of the University of Houston faculty to serve as the co-chair of the committee.
A prospective committee member who is not a member of the University of Houston faculty may receive approval to serve on a thesis/dissertation committee by the chair of the committee. The chair has the responsibility of confirming that the prospective committee member has the requisite qualifications (typically, a terminal degree, subject matter expertise, and active in the field) to serve on the committee. When the committee chair approves a non-UH committee member to serve on the committee, they should provide a CV/resume from that member as part of the committee composition record.
Changes to the Thesis/Dissertation Committee require the approval of the student, new committee members, and the graduate program director. The graduate director (and department chair) will have the authority to make changes in case of a disagreement over the committee composition. In case a dispute goes beyond the department, the associate dean for graduate studies (and dean) will have this authority to appoint committee members and/or appoint an external thesis/dissertation chair to oversee the proceedings. Exceptions to this process may be granted by petition to the Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School.
All thesis/dissertation committee members should be entered into the student information system when the committee is formed to facilitate accurate academic records. Exception: At this time, committee members not employed by the University of Houston cannot be entered into the student information system.
A graduate program may have stricter requirements with respect to the final exam/defense and these requirements should be clearly articulated in the written policies and procedures or catalog entry for the graduate program.
The thesis/dissertation committee will conduct a final exam/defense as specified in the degree requirements. The final exam/defense should be scheduled such that the thesis/dissertation is available in nearly final form so that the committee has adequate time to review the document prior to the final exam/defense. While the final exam/defense may broadly cover the disciplinary field of the candidate’s training, the primary questioning should be related to the thesis/dissertation. A positive evaluation by the thesis/dissertation committee - with at most one dissension - is required for a student to pass. The dissenting member should indicate their dissent on the approval form. At the discretion of the thesis/dissertation committee and per the graduate program rules, a student may be given one opportunity to repeat a final exam/defense for the master’s/doctoral degree. The repeat exam/defense must be held no later than the end of the next fall/spring semester (summer terms excluded). A graduate program may have stricter requirements with respect to the final exam/defense and these requirements should be clearly articulated in the written policies and procedures or catalog entry for the graduate program.
A student enrolled in a thesis/dissertation course should receive a grade of S/U each semester until the semester in which the thesis/dissertation is defended and finalized. Upon completion of the thesis/dissertation, the student is awarded a letter grade commensurate with performance in that course. A final grade of B or better is required on the completed thesis/dissertation in order for the student to graduate. Colleges will ensure that the thesis or dissertation has been submitted and approved, and a letter grade of B or better assigned to the thesis/dissertation course, prior to certifying the student’s graduation.
This letter grade may be applied to thesis/dissertation course hours up to a maximum of 12 cumulative total letter-graded credit hours of Dissertation coursework for a Doctoral degree and a maximum of 6 cumulative total letter-graded credit hours of Master’s Thesis coursework for a Master’s degree. Once students are enrolled in thesis/dissertation courses, they must continuously enroll in them until a degree is conferred. (Also see section on the 99-Hour Doctoral Cap .)
Preparation of Document
The University of Houston uses an electronic thesis/dissertation submission process for submission of the final, official version of the document to the university. Please check with your specific department or college for details regarding the steps for submitting a thesis or dissertation to your college and the university.
Approval of Document Proposal
Students must receive approval of their thesis or dissertation proposal from their thesis or dissertation committee. In some departments, students may not begin research prior to admission to candidacy without the approval of an advisor. The committee is approved by the dean of the college upon the advice of the appropriate department chair or in accordance with college policies. Students must check with their departments or programs for deadlines regarding the submission of the thesis or dissertation proposal.
The thesis or dissertation must present evidence of a mastery of the literature in an area of study, a significant contribution to knowledge, and the ability to conduct independent research.
Every thesis, dissertation or other research project involving the use of Human subjects must be approved by the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects before research is started. Students should consult their faculty advisors for information. For additional information or an application form, contact the Office of Research Policies, Compliance and Committees , 316 Ezekiel W. Cullen Building, (713) 743-9104.
As a general rule, the format and style of presentation should conform to the most acceptable standards of scientific and scholarly writing in the discipline. For instances in which this general rule is an inadequate guide, reference should be made to a style manual approved by the college or department.
Before preparing the thesis or dissertation, the student should obtain a copy of the guide for the preparation and submission of theses and dissertations from the appropriate college office.
Approval of the Final Draft
The final draft of the thesis or dissertation must be completed and submitted to the advisory committee as early as stipulated by the committee, but no later than the deadlines specified by the college. After students have received approval of the final draft from their advisory committee, they must submit it to the college for approval no later than the deadline specified by the college.
Once they have received approval from the college, students must submit the college-approved thesis or dissertation electronically for archiving by the University. Students will submit the work and faculty will approve it using Vireo, following the instructions found at the following link: http://www.uh.edu/graduate-school/thesis/ . Students must submit their documents in Portable Document Format (PDF) per the guidelines on the web site, following all program, department, and/or college-specific requirements. Students may have hard copies of their theses or dissertations bound for personal use, and they should check whether their specific program, department, college, or library requires a bound copy as well.
After your thesis/dissertation has been approved by your advisor and college in Vireo, your document’s content is considered finalized and you are not allowed to make any changes.
Deadline for Completed Submission
All student, department, and college approval processes for submission of thesis or dissertation-including college approval of defended thesis or dissertation, assignment of final grade(s) for thesis or dissertation courses by the faculty advisor, and all components of electronic submission to the university for archiving-must be completed no later than the final grading deadline for faculty for session 1 (regular academic session) of the academic term, as published in the graduate Academic Calendar .
If a student meets all of the requirements described above for completed submission of thesis or dissertation prior to the last day to add a class in session 1 (regular academic session) of the academic term, they are eligible to request via petition to have their minimum required enrollment reduced to one credit hour. Such petitions are approved at the discretion of the Associate Dean for graduate studies of the respective college and filed with the Graduate School. Such petitions must be submitted to and approved by the Associate Dean for graduate studies no later than the last day to add classes in session 1 (regular academic session) of the academic term, as published in the graduate Academic Calendar . Students who meet this early submission deadline and do not submit a petition to request a reduced minimum required enrollment by the last day to add a class in session 1 (regular academic session) for the academic term are required to remain in the required three credit hours of enrollment.
Previous Publication of Materials
Students who have previously published portions of their electronic thesis or dissertation in professional journals or in books must demonstrate who ultimately retains the copyright to the published works before material can be made publicly available in UH Libraries’ Vireo repository. It is the student’s responsibility to determine copyright ownership; he/she should consult the contracts signed between the corresponding author and the publisher to determine the copyright holder.
Future Publication of Materials
It is recommended that any future publication (article or book) include a note indicating that the material is, or is based upon, a thesis or dissertation submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the designated degree at the University of Houston.
Take Down Policy
The University of Houston Institutional Repository (UH IR) is intended to be a permanent archive of, and provide persistent access to, deposited theses and dissertations, among other materials. When authors submit their thesis or dissertation to the Vireo system, it will be deposited in the UH IR pending any embargo, and will only be removed under special circumstances, including copyright violations, plagiarism, or falsification of data . When authors leave the University, their material will remain in the repository. Authors who wish to request the removal of items that they, or others, have submitted to UH IR should contact the Library by emailing [email protected] . The requesters should provide a full statement of the rationale for removing the item, which will be reviewed by UH Libraries and the Graduate School. In cases where material is removed, the citation/metadata information will remain displayed.
Texas A&M’s 2023 Three Minute Thesis Finals Set for Friday
Ten graduate students will compete in Texas A&M University’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition finals on Nov. 3. The winner will go on to represent Texas A&M at the southeast regional 3MT competition, held at the Council of Southern Graduate School’s (CSGS) annual meeting in March in Greenville, South Carolina. Developed in 2008 by Australia’s University of Queensland, 3MT gives competitors three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research and its significance to a non-specialist audience, using just one slide. The event was an instant hit in Australia and quickly spread beyond its borders where it has been adopted by universities worldwide. Texas A&M was among the first U.S. institutions to hold a 3MT competition in 2013. This year marks the 11th annual installment of the event on A&M’s campus. The competition is an opportunity for graduate students to sharpen their research focus, improve their presentation skills and perfect their elevator pitch for prospective employers and anyone else interested in learning about their research. Graduate and Professional School Interim Associate Provost and Dean Fuhui Tong said 3MT showcases outstanding research by graduate students and presents a great opportunity to communicate that research to the campus and greater community.
“3MT serves as a remarkable platform to highlight the outstanding research conducted by Texas A&M’s graduate students. The competition’s focus on participants’ ability to explain the importance of their research to an audience outside their discipline makes it an effective means to bridge the gap between research and real-world impact,” Tong said. Five colleges and 10 departments are represented by presenters in this year’s finals. Last year’s top honors went to Chih-Shen Cheng , from the College of Engineering. As a result of Cheng’s win, his Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has held the Texas A&M University 3MT cup for the past year.
This year, Vivek Bheeroo , a doctoral student from civil engineering, will try to retain the department’s hold on the cup. Other competitors are: Hannah Bowling (Arts & Sciences – English) Gemini Creason-Parker (Arts & Sciences – Sociology) Sarah Hargett (Engineering – Biomedical Engineering) Mahtab Heydari (Engineering – Mechanical Engineering) Justinn Jones (Agriculture & Life Sciences – Ecology and Conservation Biology) Srihari Menon (Engineering – Industrial Engineering) Oluyomi Oloruntoba (Public Health – Public Health Sciences) Andrea Porter (Engineering Interdisciplinary Engineering) Rohit Kumar (Architecture – Architecture)
The 3MT finals, hosted by the Graduate and Professional School, is Friday, Nov. 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Rudder Forum. The event is free and open to the public and also available via livestream. Registration to attend in person or watch the livestream is required. Visit tx.ag/3MTFinals2023 for info.

- > Nicolas Gonzalez Padilla Defends Master's Thesis Friday!
Mr. Nicolas Gonzalez Padilla will defend his Master's Thesis in a meeting that will be chaired by Dr. Jane Lehr on Friday, Nov. 10 at 2:30 pm in ECE 118.
The title of Mr. Padilla's thesis is "Study of SI-GaN Photoconductive switches operating modes using near-IR radiation."
To learn more about Mr. Padilla's research, please refer to his abstract, shown below.
One of the most promising solid-state devices for fast switching and radio frequency generation applications is the photoconductive switch (PCSS). These devices have been thoroughly explored since the late 1980s and exhibit remarkable switching properties in gallium arsenide (GaAs).
With recent advances in wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor manufacturing processes, there has been an increasing interest in using WBG semiconductors to implement PCSS. WBG semiconductors could exhibit the same switching characteristics as GaAs while overcoming their poor power management and short lifetime under pulsed power conditions, making PCSS a reliable option in high-power applications.
Gallium Nitride ( GaN) has emerged as one of the WBG semiconductors with the greatest potential to replace GaAs in PCSS devices; however, there is still no agreement on the physical phenomenon that describes the behavior of PCSS in its various modes of operation, which has hampered the development of GaN-based PCSS. While various studies have documented linear mode observations in WGB-based PCSS, the nonlinear or high-gain mode has proven more difficult to detect than expected.
Recent studies conducted at the University of New Mexico's Center for Ionization, Discharge, and Applied Pulsed Energy have collected evidence of nonlinear gain mode behavior in lateral GaN-based PCSS devices with electric fields below 30 kV /cm and optical energies of the tens of microjoules. The purpose of the experiments was to identify the effectiveness of different near IR wavelengths generated by commercially available High-power laser diodes and to verify that during non-linear mode closing events, surface flashover and air breakdown do not occur.
