Calendar for the Doctoral Degree Program

The candidate must satisfy admission conditions early in the academic program and complete any language requirements before taking the qualifying examination. The candidate also must take the qualifying examination at least two terms before the final examination. In addition, he or she must file the required copies of the dissertation, complete the final examination, and return the candidacy form (which indicates the results of that examination) by the established deadlines for completing degree requirements. Finally, candidates must file their diploma applications by the appropriate deadline. At no point during this sequence may students allow their registration in the Graduate School-New Brunswick to lapse (with the exception of a recipient of the master of philosophy degree). The entire program must be completed within the period specified under Time Limits for Degrees later in this chapter.
