Each program is expected to have established procedures for monitoring annually the progress of all students registered in the program. Each doctoral program has a formal programwide procedure to review students who have completed the equivalent of approximately one year of full-time study and to decide whether they may continue toward the doctorate. This procedure may be linked to the master's degree or to the qualifying examination, or may be independent of either. In no case should it be postponed beyond the equivalent of one and one-half years of full-time study toward the degree. In connection with this procedure, faculty in a position to comment on the student's performance and progress are asked to do so by the graduate director or a designate. In conducting its review, the program will not limit its choice of faculty members to any list submitted by the student for recommendations.
