The minor form should be filled out in consultation with your faculty advisor and the Associate Chair for Graduate Programs. The minor form can be submitted before the minor is completed. It should be completed before the preliminary exam as that is the time the minor is officially declared through the university.
Once the minor form is approved, the student must also "add" the minor in the Grad Portal on My UW.
The warrant request form is for the Prelim Exam or the Thesis Defense. The date/time/location and title must be determined in advance of filling out this request. The request needs to be submitted at least 3 weeks in advance of the exam/defense date to allow time to obtain the warrant from the Graduate School.
Any student who has taken graduate level coursework at a prior institution can apply to have the Physics Ph.D. core courses waived or test out of them. The student should provide a copy of the syllabus and catalog entry showing the material covered and confirming it was graduate level. The Associate Chair for Graduate Programs will review all course waiver/test out requests.
