Master's Advancement to Candidacy

Beginning Summer 2020, Graduate Division has implemented a new DocuSign e-signing system for all of their forms. Students are no longer required to fill out the form on their own; instead, Garrett Yoshitomi will prepare the DocuSign form, and the student will receive an email notification when it is their turn to sign electronically. 

To advance to candidacy for the master's degree, please complete the Master's Advancement to Candidacy Form. Once submitted, Garrett will prepare the Graduate Division DocuSign form for you to complete and sign.
