  • Graduate Office Plan of Study form - this should generally be completed in a graduate student's 1st semester and sent to the Biology office and to the Graduate Office
  • Biology Proposal form - this is a departmental form that should be completed following the proposal defense (generally in a student's 2nd semester) and sent to the Biology office and to the Graduate Office
  • Thesis defense form - this is a departmental form that should be completed following the thesis defense and sent to the Biology office
  • Thesis Signature form - this is a template for the thesis signature page required by the Graduate Office; it should also be completed at the thesis defense

All forms to be sent to the Graduate Office do not require physical signatures, but must otherwise be filled out completely.  The Graduate Office will circulate the forms for electronic signatures upon receipt.  Email addresses for any non-NMU signatories should be included to facilitate the e-signature process.

Courses and credits

Graduate course registration forms should be downloaded, completed electronically, and sent to the Biology Department Head, who will check for completion and forward them to the Graduate Office.
