Commencement checklist

Step 4: Once you have commenced, your next mandatory step is to complete the Commencement Form Checklist within the first three to six months of your candidature.

Commencement Form Checklist

As part of your degree, you must complete the Commencement Form with your supervisors and attach a copy of the signed Supervisory Agreement Form to the Commencement Form in the Candidature Management System — this is a mandatory requirement.

You will be sent the Commencement Form once you have commenced officially.

The purpose of this checklist is to assist you to establish plans to interact regularly with your supervisory panel and to discuss expectations throughout your candidature. The checklist also helps you to be aware of important information and processes associated with your degree, as well as resources and support available to you. The form is due within the first six calendar months of your candidature; however, it is highly recommended to complete the form within three months of your commencement.

Once you complete your section of the form, it will then be sent to your Principal Supervisor to review and to add extra comments, if required.
