IMPORTANT NEWS FALL 2014
We have experienced a problem with the Comprehensive Exam application this term. We’ve been using a GoogleDoc for this application for several semesters with no problems—until now. We discovered the problem last Friday, and it has been corrected. If you have applied prior to August 22, please resubmit. There is no way for us to know who might have entered their information during the ‘problem’ time.
If you have questions, contact Kathy Garrison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 270.809.3779
