Final Examination

  1. The final examination is an oral exercise concerned with the dissertation, but it may be extended to other areas at the discretion of the committee. There shall be prior announcement of the name of the candidate, the field, the title of the dissertation, and the date, time, and place of the final examination. All members of the University faculty may attend as observers.
  2. The final examination is scheduled only after completion of the dissertation in a form acceptable to the dissertation committee and after all other requirements for the doctorate have been satisfied. For a student to graduate at the end of a semester, the final examination must be completed by the date designated in the schedule of classes. Satisfactory performance on the examination completes all academic requirements for the degree.
