Be sure to stay in frequent contact with your committee as your defense approaches and immediately afterward so you will know about any travel plans or other circumstances that might make getting a member’s signature on your GS7M or GS7D form (see next question) and other paperwork difficult.
There are several deadlines students must meet to graduate.
