Ph.D. Student Awarded Durham Fellowship
For Radwa Hanafy, a Ph.D. student in the Microbiology & Molecular Genetics Department, being acknowledged by, first, her department and then all the way to the Graduate College provided a sense of needed validation.
Ironically, the fellowship that provided her this feeling is also named after a man who left a massive impact on multiple other graduate students in his time.

The top reason why non-thesis students fail to graduate: Grades Not Changed!
Any incomplete grades for courses on the plan of study will delay graduation. Thesis and dissertation research hours do not need to be assigned a letter grade. The grade of “R” may also be used for a creative component course if the project extends beyond one semester. However, that grade must be changed to a valid letter grade before the degree can be awarded.
The top reason why thesis/dissertation students fail to graduate: Failure to Complete Thesis/Dissertation Submission!
Uploading the thesis or dissertation document electronically does not equal being done with the submission. The Graduate College must have received the abstract and approval page. The submission must be reviewed and approved. Finally, all doctoral students must have completed the Survey of Earned Doctorates before they can submit.
