Special purpose forms

These forms are for students with special circumstances, and are not required for all students.

The forms don't work. What should I do?

All Graduate School forms may be completed in newer versions of Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader (v9 or higher).  If you are experiencing problems try:

  1. Switching to a different browser. Currently, Internet Explorer is recommended.
    • There are known incompatibility issues with Firefox v19, Chrome, Preview (the PDF reader on a macintosh) and Linux machines.
    • Students who click on a form link and receive the message, "Please wait.... If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of your document..." have an incompatible browser or plug-in.
  2. Saving the file to your hard drive and open with the newest version of Acrobat Reader rather than clicking on the link and opening in your browser.
    1. Right-click or option-click the hyperlink
    2. Save the form on your hard drive.
    3. Open the file directly from Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
  3. Reconfiguring your browser to open PDF files using a compatible plug-in. Firefox users may reconfigure their browsers using the instructions below:
    1. Select Tools...Options from the menu bar
    2. Select the "Applications" tab in the pop up window
    3. Search for and select "Portable Document Format (PDF)" in the Content Type list
    4. Select "Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox)" as the Action
    5. Press "OK"
