Greetings Cohort of 2013! Congratulations on a successful spring semester! Here are some important updates:
Summer 2015 Class Dates
Over the past few days I have gotten many questions regarding when classes start for the summer, so I thought some clarification may help. Each summer session is assigned a Session Code which will determine when the class will be taken. Here is a breakdown:
059- all 12 weeks of summer on main campus and OC
050- first 6 weeks of summer on main campus
051- second 6 weeks of summer on main campus
300- first half of summer on OC campus
301- second half of summer on OC campus
When looking at your class schedule in OASIS or through Web Registration you should see these codes accompanying your course information. You can also find these codes here: http://classes.usc.edu/term-20152/codes/. Please let me know if you have any questions.
In addition to your coursework this summer, you will be defending your dissertation proposal in what is called the Qualifying Exam. In preparation of the Qualifying Exam, you should be in the process of securing your Dissertation Committee.
There has been some confusion surrounding the Appointment of Committee form. This form is due prior to your Qualifying Exam. Please keep in mind that all committee signatures are due on one form. Also, don’t forget your signature is required on page two of the form- many students are forgetting to include this page! If you have questions about this process please do not hesitate to contact me.
Students must successfully pass their Qualifying Exam by 12pm on Friday, September 11th, or they must enroll in EDUC 791 (1 unit) for the fall semester, instead of EDUC 794a. EDUC 791 aids students in maintaining continuous enrollment while they prepare to successfully pass the Qualifying Exam. Once the Qualifying Exam is passed, you may enroll in EDUC 794a for the next academic term.
