Thesis Defense Certificate Request

Please submit this form at least 1 month (30 days) prior to your scheduled defense date and time.

Please do not submit this form more than 60 days in advance of your defense. Submitting this form any earlier may result in lost or damaged defense packets which will require that they be generated again, and this wastes time and resources for us all. If you have any questions at all about submitting this form, please contact Jennifer Townsend.

Please make sure that all information is spelled correctly and as you would like it to appear on your defense certificate and ScholarWorks form.

Your defense packet must be completed by your committee at your defense. We will notify you via your wmich.edu email address when it is ready to be picked up at the front desk.

Fall 2020 Thesis Defense Information:

All thesis defenses for fall 2020 must be conducted online. You may do this via Webex, Zoom, or any other video conferencing platform that works best for you and your committee. You MUST STILL defend your thesis to your committee, and you MUST STILL submit a defense request, even though you are not able to defend in person. All thesis packets will be emailed to you electronically for fall thesis defenses. You are responsible for setting the date, time, and video conferencing platform that work best for you and your committee. 

Please direct any questions to Jennifer Townsend.
