How do I schedule my thesis/dissertation defense?
In compliance with Boise State’s directive that all academic activity be moved online, we have made some adjustments to our procedures for a master’s thesis or doctoral defense. Rest assured, students will have no interruption in their ability to complete this vital step in their academic process. For the time being, all thesis/dissertation defenses will be competed online through Zoom.
Students will still be required to submit a defense notification at least two weeks prior to their defense date. When the notification is received by the Graduate Student Success Center, an email will be go out to the student’s committee chair and program coordinator with a Zoom link, instructions on how to access that link, and instructions on how to navigate in Zoom to maintain the traditional structure of the defense.
Students will not be expected to set up any of these processes; it will be handled directly by the GSSC in conjunction with appropriate faculty.
