A approval process can be set per checkpoint.
Which user roles have to agree depends on the Graduate School and the checkpoints.
If you have to approve as a Graduate School Coordinator you will receive an e-mail requesting you to do so.
It depends on the pre-arranged process whether or not a GSC has to approve. This differs per graduate school.
The steps of the approval process
Prior to the checkpoint, the PhD candidate, the supervisor, co-supervisor and Graduate School Coordinator will receive an email with information about the checkpoint.
After the PhD candidate has submitted the checkpoint, the Graduate School Coordinator will receive an email containing a link to assess the checkpoint.
The Graduate School Coordinator opens the link in the email and provides an assessment.
Comments can be entered if necessary.
