  • Thursday 14 July at noon PST, GL102



Zoom webinar, same dates and times at left.


You will receive an attendance code by email 3–5 business days after the brief. 



Afterward, tell us how we did!



Who should attend

September graduates are required to attend the brief in person or via Zoom webinar, download the handouts, and enter an attendance code into their thesis / dissertation dashboard. December 2022 PhD candidates will also qualify for an attendance code. Future graduates are encouraged to attend. Because procedures can vary from quarter to quarter, students must attend a brief during the quarter in which they graduate.


Unable to attend?

A recording of the brief will be available on this page approximately 3–5 days after the last session. You will need to communicate with your ed tech (not TPO), to confirm attendance and receive an attendance code.


Attendance codes

In-person attendees will receive an attendance code at the brief. Virtual attendees will be emailed a code. Students must enter their code into their thesis dashboard (one code per team), in order to advance their thesis dashboard to the next step. The codes will work only for September graduates, December PhD candidates, and extension students.


Not required to attend and just interested in learning about the process?
