At the top of your opening page is a link to the Dissertation Student Request System (DSRS). The purpose of the DSRS is to provide dissertation students with access to a portal where descriptions of individual student problems and issues may be entered and then addressed. Within the DSRS, you will be asked to enter the type of request and a description of the problem. This request will then be recorded, addressed, tracked, and resolved. Please log in and click the DSRS tab periodically to view any messages when you have an active request.
