We are excited to continue our Ph.D. Qualification Exams with our traditional Q&A with Arka Majumdar.  Our Quals Checklist is also updated to make understanding the process simpler and a bit of fun along the way. 

Ph.D. students planning to take the Qualifying Exam in the Autumn quarter:

  • The deadline for students to complete the Qualifying Exam Application is Thursday, September 28, 2023. Once the application is submitted, the faculty advisor will receive a link to the online Faculty Advisor Letter of Recommendation which will be due Friday, September 29, 2023.
  • Students applying for the exam and Faculty entering recommendations online – please read the Qualifying Exam Requirements and Procedures resource page. 
  • Qual Exams for Fall 2023 will be either in person or online via Zoom in accordance with the Graduate School policy.  Masks will be recommended for all in-person meetings and the student will be required to schedule the conference room. After the exam panel is approved by the Qualifying Exam Faculty Lead, the student will be responsible for scheduling the exam sometime during weeks 6-8 of the quarter and make sure that all panel members are given meeting information. The exam date/time/zoom-room will be provided by the student to Graduate Advising by the third Friday of the quarter.
  • Timing, Applying, and Scheduling details for your Qualifying Exam in Autumn quarter are also on Canvas, so please read that thoroughly.
