Thesis, Defense and Project Planning Portal: UGA Regulatory Affairs Masters Program RA Portal Thesis, Defense and Project Planning Portal
 

This section is intended for Masters-level students who are planning their MS theses, oral defenses, and Project activities. This page has four parts. They are:

  1. Regulatory Affairs Thesis and Project Paths summary page link (applies to thesis and project paths)
  2. UGA Regulatory Affairs Master's Student Guide Document (applies to thesis and project paths)
  3. UGA Graduate School Thesis and Dissertations Guidelines (applies to thesis students)
  4. Request for Services from the UGA Regulatory Affairs Program (applies to thesis and project paths)

Graduate students in the RA Department are encouraged to review these guidelines regularly, since policies are often clarified each semester.

Reminder: grad.uga.edu/ and research.uga.edu/portal/researchers/ - Some of the links and URLs listed on these pages go to the UGA Graduate School or IRB Office. The RA Office makes every attempt to keep our pages up-to-date; however, we have no control over these websites. If you find a broken link, 1) please alert the RA Department and 2) then, go to the UGA Graduate School's site, or other appropriate department, and search for that page. A broken link on our departmental pages does not absolve you of the responsibility for ensuring that proper UGA documents are submitted or proper procedures are followed.

4. Request for Services from the UGA Regulatory Affairs Department -

In an effort to help MS students plan and complete thesis or final projects, students may utilize some of the services within the UGA Regulatory Affairs Office. The services include the use of teleconference services, web-conferencing, or the scheduling of classrooms on the Gwinnett or Athens campuses. To request services, fill out the form below. Be sure that you have coordinated the date and time of your meeting with your faculty committee before you request services. If you are making a change to an existing request, please email cdavpt1[at]uga.edu with your modifications. Keep in mind -

1) You are responsible for coordinating meeting dates and times with your participants. The RA Office does not coordinate planning meetings or thesis defenses.

2) You must allow the RA Office a minimum of 72 hours lead time on ALL requests. Allow additional time if you submit your request over the weekend. Do not wait until the last minute. The more time you can give the department, the better.

3) If you have not heard from the RA Office within 48 hour timeframe during the work week, please call 678-985-6809. Allow additional time if your request is submitted over the weekend.

4) If you require assistance with using eLC or Blackboard Classroom for your meeting or defense, you should contact Johnna Hodges jhodges[at]uga.edu to schedule a practice session. Again, you must allow sufficient time: minimum of 72 hours lead time on ALL requests. Allow additional time if you submit your request over the weekend or a holiday. Do not wait until the last minute. The more time you can give the department, the better.
