12.9 Satisfactory Progress
Students enrolled in advanced degree programs are expected to make satisfactory progress toward completing their degree program by making satisfactory advancement in completing the required research, qualifying examinations, thesis or dissertation, and other University or departmental requirements. Advisors and program directors are responsible for informing students of unsatisfactory progress. Advisors may request dismissal of students who do not meet expectations after students have been given adequate opportunity to improve. Dismissal from the Graduate School is determined by the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies.
