PhD Qualifying Exam - For AHN & FRHD Students
- According to the University of Guelph Graduate Calendar, "As a qualifying examination, consideration is to be given not only (1) to the student's knowledge of the subject matter and ability to integrate the material derived from his or her studies, but also (2) to the student's ability and promise in research. The examining committee, therefore, will receive from the advisory committee a written evaluation of the quality of the student's research performance to date and of the student's potential as a researcher. The examining committee will determine the relative importance to be given to these two major components of the qualifying examination."

When submitting a thesis on-line, all required forms must be submitted to the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies prior to the acceptance of the thesis. Failure to do so may result in rejection of the thesis or delay in graduation. Please reference the submission checklist for information of submission requirements.
Submission of a thesis to ProQuest may be made independently by the student, should they wish additional publication at through ProQuest/UMI.

- We are happy to announce an automated process for the Application for Graduation for graduate students. Each semester graduate students in semester 2 and up receive an email asking them to self identify their eligibility for graduation and to apply on-line. Should a student apply to graduate and find out later in the semester that they will not be eligible, their application will be rolled over to the next semester at no cost to the student.
