Students should check on deadlines for defence, submission of theses, and the application to graduate well in advance - consult the Academic Calendar or contact the graduate administrative support staff of the academic unit. It is the responsibility of the student to make all revisions and corrections of the thesis required by the Examining Committee. The research supervisor is expected to advise the student in making these changes and to verify that they have been made. If members of the Examining Committee have withheld their signature on certification pages at the time of the oral defence, it is the responsibility of the research supervisor to ensure that they see the changes and indicate on behalf of the Examining Committee that he or she deems the changes to be complete and appropriate. The author of a thesis claims copyright on the title page by using the appropriate notation.
