Thesis Defense Registration

After you have submitted your adviser-approved thesis to Gallatin using  the Thesis Submission form, you should use this form to schedule your  thesis defense. Note that you must submit this form no less than three weeks before your defense date.

The Defense Committee

Each thesis committee includes three panelists who will read the thesis and participate in the thesis defense. Of the three panelists, one must be the student's primary academic adviser, and at least one must be a full-time Gallatin faculty member. If the academic adviser is a full-time Gallatin faculty member, the student may opt to ask two other non-Gallatin faculty members to serve on the committee.

It is the student's responsibility to coordinate the date and time of the defense with the committee members before submitting this form.
