At many times in your graduate career, you will be asked to fill out a form. Susan White can help you decipher which forms you need when, and most forms (including those for M.S. students) can be found on the Graduate School web site. On this page, you can find some of the more commonly used forms.
Annual Progress Report
As described in the Student Handbook, every student, regardless of source of financial support, anticipated graduation date, or year in program, must submit an annual progress report each year by Feburary 15th. This report covers your progress during the previous calendar year, from January 1st - December 31st.
The student should complete Part 1 and send it to their advisor. The advisor then completes Part 2 with input from the student’s committee, and returns the form to the student. Part 3 is an opportunity for the student to respond to this feedback. Email the final document and your CV to Susan White (email@example.com) no later than February 15th.
This form is both a way to collect information about student achievements and activities as well as to serve as an evaluation/mentoring tool. If you are a first-year student, we understand you just joined a lab and the department, and so fill this form out to the best of your ability. It will only cover your time in grad school at UGA.
This form is not directly attached to a committee meeting, but the student’s committee should be given the opportunity to contribute to Part 2. We strongly encourage a discussion between the student and his/her advisor/committee about what is written in Part 2. To encourage openness, this form will not be used when determining departmental awards.
