Admission to Candidacy

1. Admission to candidacy for the Doctor of Philosophy degree is recognition of a stage in advancement toward the degree.

2. Immediately after satisfactory completion of the general comprehensive examination and language requirement, the student shall make application for admission to candidacy on the form available in the Graduate School office. Departmental regulations stipulate whether a prospectus is required. If it is required, the appropriate form must be signed by the student, the committee members, and the chairman of the department or program. A copy must be on file in the Graduate School.

3. Each application for admission to candidacy must be approved by the Graduate Dean. No person whose proficiency in English (or French, in Francophone studies) is unsatisfactory will be admitted to candidacy.
