Using The Verification of Final Degree Requirements Form

Welcome back to the Graduate School blog. Our quest to reduce student errors on forms continues! This post is for students enrolled in a coursework only program. If you’re doing a research based degree (dissertation, thesis, or report), this form is not required for you.

Where Do I Find The Form?

The Verification of Final Degree Requirements Form can be found on our Forms and Deadlines page under the Current Students section or by following this link or on your MyMichiganTech page. Please note that the Verification of Final Degree Requirements Form, like all of our forms, is dynamic. As a dynamic form, it will only work in Adobe Acrobat or Reader.  If the hyperlink above doesn’t open the PDF as expected, we recommend right clicking on the link, selecting “Save link as…” (or similar option in your browser) and saving the file.  After you have saved the file, open Adobe Acrobat or Reader and open the saved form.

Now that you know where to find this form and how open it, let’s talk about filling it out.

Providing Personal Information

To start this form off you will need to fill in your personal information. This includes your name and M Number. If you do not know your M number, fret not, you can always find it on MyMichiganTech.

Providing your Last Name, First Name, and M Number allows us to keep accurate records of your progress towards your degree.

Using the Pre-Defense Form

One of the most common issues we see here in the Graduate School are forms being filled out and submitted incorrectly. We hope that this upcoming series of blog posts will clarify how our dynamic forms work and reduce the stress on you, the student, when filling them out.

Today’s topic is the Pre-Defense Form. This form must be submitted to the Graduate School two weeks prior to your thesis, dissertation or report defense.

Where Do I Find the Form?

The Pre-Defense Form can be found on the Degree Completion Timeline, on your MyMichiganTech, or by following this link. Please note that the Pre-Defense form, like many of our forms, is dynamic. As a dynamic form, it will only work in Adobe Acrobat or Reader.  If the hyperlink above doesn’t open the PDF as expected, we recommend right clicking on the link, selecting “Save link as…” (or similar option in your browser) and saving the file.  If you are still having trouble opening the form, check out this link which offers some more troubleshooting options. After you have saved the file, open Adobe Acrobat or Reader and open the saved form.

Now that you know where to find this form and where we can open it, let’s talk about filling it out.
