For information about many important issues, please go here.

For even more specific information, especially about Incompletes, etc., download the Academic Policies form at the top: current version (8/23/2013)


Please ask the History Graduate Assistant or Director for a shared Advising Spreadsheet. These are presently managed through LUC.BOX.COM.  You need to constantly update this form with reference to your LOCUS course records so that you can be sure that all degree requirements are being completed.  Place each completed course in the sheet according to the requirement it fulfills. This will be shared with the GPD and your Advisor so that we can all make sure you are meeting requirements correctly. 


You will find much information about the program in Graduate Program Handbook.


ATTENTION: Most of the Graduate Forms are to be filled out in the Graduate School Database (GSPS)--https://gsps.luc.edu.  These include:

A few forms are still to be downloaded, filled out, signed electronically, and submitted to the Graduate Program Assistant via email (mostro2@luc.edu).   We have tried to make this possible with the electronic PDF files, below.  Simply download the desired PDF and fill it out electronically (the files MUST be downloaded first--they cannot be filled out in a browser's 'preview' window).  They can be then be signed using the latest versions of Adobe Acrobat, if you have it.  If not--or if your committee members aren't able to do this--please print and sign them on paper and give them to Mr. Ostrowski to scan for you.  If you have any other questions about filling out an electronic form, please send an email to the above address.
