PhD Exam Scheduling

Preliminary Oral Exam Scheduling

  • The student must schedule the preliminary oral examination with Graduate Student Services and Progress (GSSP) online as soon as a date is set, but no later than one week prior to the examination. Depending on when the student schedules their Prelim Oral will determine if the Reviewers' Report Form will be mailed via campus mail to the chair or if the student will have to pick it up from GSSP in 160 Williamson.
  • Once the student schedules online, a confirmation email will be sent to the student's UMN email account.
  • Upon initial review of the student's record, an email will be sent to the student's UMN email account regarding any outstanding preliminary oral exam requirements, and how to fulfill those requirements.
  • About one week prior to the exam, an email will be sent to the student's UMN email account confirming authorization of the exam or reminding the student of remaining outstanding requirements.
