All doctoral students must pass three examinations:
Exam I (6194) is a diagnostic exam, usually given following completion of the first year. It consists of a written examination, based on a broad problem in the area of the student's research track, and an oral examination to defend the written one. The oral exam also may cover areas of perceived weakness in the student's background.
Exam II (6195) is for admission to candidacy for a Ph.D. It consists of a detailed written prospectus of the proposed dissertation research (6397, 6697, or 6997) and an oral examination.
Exam III (6399, 6699, or 6999) is the final oral defense of the completed dissertation.
