DEB Program Application Forms and Surveys

Below is a comprehensive list of official Graduate Studies application forms and DEB program forms, reports and surveys needed throughout participation, from inquiry to degree completion.

Graduate Studies application forms must be signed by the DEB Chair, Prof. Abhaya Dandekar (Plant Sciences). To receive his electronic signature on a form, please email DEB director Denneal Jamison-McClung and cc Program Manager Jacki Balderama and Professor Dandekar. For DE Applications, the order of signatures on the GS323 form are as follows:

  1. the student's Program Advisor (a faculty member) signs
  2. the DEB Chair (Prof. Dandekar) signs
  3. the student's Program Coordinator (a staff member) signs

The Biotech Program manager, Ms. Jacki Balderama, will assist the DEB Chair in reviewing student communications and verifying completion of requirements in the DEB database for all of the forms listed below. Always communicate with all three people - Prof. Dandekar, Dr. Jamison-McClung and Ms. Balderama - when processing DEB-related forms for the Office of Graduate Studies.  

Internal program reports and surveys help us to provide guidance for students as they navigate their degrees and improve courses, workshops and other DEB-related professional development activities.  Below, we have linked the annual DEB Progress Report, an internship survey and a DEB exit survey.  Students will receive an email prompt to fill these documents out at appropriate times. The DEB Progress Report is particularly important for tracking student progress to degree completion and keeping our databases up to date. We have recently streamlined this report and it should take ~15 minutes or less for students to update their draft copy each fall, adding dates for completed forms, courses, workshops and activities to the relevant tables. Please us know if there are questions about any of these items.
