3.4-Ph.D. Entrance Examinations

(3.4) Ph.D. Entrance Examinations

A common Ph.D. Entrance Exam/M.S. Advanced Exam structure is adopted. No later than the end of their second full academic year in the program, students must pass two subject area exams at the Ph.D. level, chosen from Algebra, Real Analysis, Differential Equations, and Topology. Failure to meet this requirement will result in the student being dropped from the program. The Examination procedures are fully described in Attachment 2.

Students are responsible for meeting this timetable. Any delay in taking the examinations, or other exceptions to examination procedures, can only be granted by the Graduate Programs Committee and must be requested beforehand.
