COVID-19 Impact on OGSR Forms:

Until further notice, the OGSR is only accepting forms submitted via W&M email address (i.e., @wm.edu for faculty or @email.wm.edu for students) sent to dean-gsr@wm.edu.  There are a variety of acceptable ways to sign forms remotely. View this tip sheet for suggestions.

COVID-19 Impact on Defenses and Graduate Examinations:

The OGSR is now requiring that during the period of modified academic operations, now extended through the end of the semester, all dissertation/thesis defenses, qualifying and comprehensive exams and other similar graduate milestone events happen via remote means. The Committee on Graduate Studies has granted a blanket exception to the policy in the Graduate A&S Catalog that states students must be present on campus when sitting for exams and defenses. Here is a tip sheet on how to make the most of an online defense or examination.

Please refer to the instructions included on the forms' cover pages to help you choose the appropriate form for your circumstance. Under certain circumstances proxy signatures may be allowed on forms.

Note that most of the forms linked below are provided as "fillable" PDFs. For best results, we recommend you download the pdf, enter text in the fillable fields, and then print the form and obtain any needed signatures. You can also print the .pdf and and complete the form by hand (use blue or black ink, and please make sure the text is legible).
