Zoology Graduate Student Digital Archives
To view a list of important graduate files cataloged of yours, go here (vs. emailing me). This table is routinely updated. Your ID is the last four digits of your dawg tag.
As of Jan 1 2023, all forms and documents must be submitted as a digital document (e.g. a PDF). This means if you have a physical document, you must scan it and send me the scan (see preferred method below). You are also encouraged to put the physical document in my mailbox for safekeeping. Please label the document appropriately with your last name and the document type ( e.g. “BrownJL_PlanOfStudy.pdf” or “SmithA_CommitteeForm.pdf”).
Preferred document submission method. Upload the Zoology Graduate forms onto the shared OneDrive folder (you must use your SIU.EDU email account to access this folder). I will routinely clear these files out and move them to the private ‘Zoology Graduate Program Archive’.
Alternative document submission method. Given some of you might not feel comfortable placing these documents in a shared folder, feel free to send them via email to grad.zoology AT siu.edu. Do not send them to my standard SIU account, they will likely be lost. Any document with personal information not typically shared, should be emailed.
