Reexamination Policy Candidacy Examination: Comprehensive Examination

  • A student who fails the candidacy examination, or any part of the comprehensive examination, qualifying examination, or any of the examinations in foreign languages and/or computer language may request reexamination not earlier than one semester following the time of failure, nor later than one year after that date.

    No student is permitted a third examination without a recommendation to that effect from the degree program’s sponsoring department and the approval of the University-Wide Graduate Committee. Exceptions to this policy for programs can be made only with the approval of the University-Wide Graduate Committee.
