I got this in the mail today. It looked so official, it made me happy and I had to share. It has been such a long road. After having been through a lot in the last few years, being able to accomplish this is especially meaningful. When you want something, the universe conspires on your behalf . . .
Here's to wishing that all your dreams come true.
MARIA ALEJANDRA ACUNA
Dear Ms. ACUNA
Based on the recommendation of the members of your doctoral committee, who indicate you have passed your University Written and Oral Qualifying Examinations, you were advanced to candidacy for the doctoral degree on 7/1/2013. The UC doctoral candidacy fee has been billed to your BruinBill account and will appear as two separate charges.
If offered by the program the Candidate in Philosophy degree will automatically be awarded to you.
Please be aware that you must be continuously enrolled throughout the completion of your degree. Continuous enrollment means you are registered, registered in absentia, or on an official leave of absence.
For information regarding the filing of your dissertation, including filing fees, information sessions, and the formatting and filing guide, please visit www.grad.ucla.edu/etd.
We congratulate you on your accomplishments thus far and wish you success in the completion of your doctoral degree requirements.
