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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
