Welcome!  We are glad that you chose Water Resources Graduate Program for your MS and/or PhD.

**Everything you need to know about preparing for your thesis/dissertation defense can be found here. **

Students and their major advisor's need to communicate goals and progress with each other, then provide this information on to the department for assessment. 

It is mandatory to let the WRGP and your advising department know that you will be defending.  This will also allow us enough time to schedule a room as well as promote your defense.  The request form can be found here: Defense Information Request for WRGP.

Room Reservations:

If you intend on meeting in person, for now, please make sure you choose a room with Zoom capabilities, so that your defense can be seen by anyone who can't attend.
