Annual evaluations are required for all degree-seeking graduate students and will occur every spring semester.
The student will complete an electronic self-evaluation detailing academic progress. The advisor (or department designee) will assess the progress report and provide online feedback to the student. An additional authorized faculty member may also be asked to review the progress report. The evaluation is kept in the student’s permanent file. Failure to complete the academic self-evaluation by the deadline will result in a hold being placed on the student's account.
Doctoral students will receive a letter notifying them of their status at the end of each spring semester.
When a decision is made that a student is not making satisfactory progress, the student, the advisor, the Director of Graduate Studies, and the Graduate College will be informed in writing by the department. Graduate students and advisors should consult the Graduate College Probation Policy for more information.
