Once the request has been reviewed, a support staff member will contact you to schedule a meeting. A fourth member will be added to the committee (by appointment of the Associate Head for Mechanics Programs).

3. Once the committee has been approved you will begin working with them to confirm a date, time, and schedule the location for the exam. You should see Support Services (Rm 160 MEB) for help in scheduling a room in either MEB or MEL.
