Department or college specific seminars can be set up by departmental graduate advisors or committee chairs in cooperation with the Thesis and Dissertation Office. Format seminars for manuscript preparation can be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Check with your departmental graduate advisor or committee chair for date, time, and location.
