THE GRADUATE COUNCIL Graduate students are expected to make satisfactory progress in their programs. And we, as faculty and administrators, need to support their advance toward degree completion. For Ph.D. students, the Annual Review was instituted to provide feedback regarding academic progress and to assist in developing goals for future work. In some cases, however, students are unable to meet goals, and programs must make difficult decisions about whether the student should continue in the program. These guidelines are designed to help programs define satisfactory academic progress and respond when students are not advancing appropriately. The guidelines incorporate existing and new policies. Graduate Student Academic Progress Guidelines Student Responsibilities in Making Satisfactory Academic Progress To remain in good academic standing, students must: 1. Make satisfactory progress toward the degree as evidenced by: Meeting degree milestones, e.g., candidacy, prospectus approval, in a timely manner so that completion within the degree time limit appears likely. For Ph.D. students, passing the Qualifying Exam within two attempts and passing the Dissertation Defense. Meeting the program and the Graduate School requirements for enrollment. Accumulating only a limited number of unchanged I or Y grades.
