Rotation Paperwork

During the first two weeks of the quarter the student must identify the rotation project and write a rotation proposal which must be approved and signed by the faculty advisor and rotation supervisor and then turned into CMB by the end of the second week of instruction. During the last two weeks of the quarter the student must write a  rotation report (up to three pages not including figures and bibliography) which must be completed, approved, signed by both the rotation supervisor and the faculty advisor, and then submitted to CMB by the end of finals week. The rotation report must be approved and signed by the faculty advisor, and will count toward the grade for the course. Copies of both the proposal and the signed report must be handed in to Renée Frigo in the CMB office (4143 Natural Sciences II) and will be added to the student’s file. The rotation advisor prints out the rotation evaluation form, completes it and sends it to the CMB office where it becomes part of the student’s file. A rotation that was performed in an CMB laboratory during the summer before entry into the program will count as one of the two required rotations. Laboratory rotations earn between 2 and 6 credits and are graded as Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U). A grade of “S” will not be averaged in the student’s overall GPA.
