Recommendation for Advancement to Candidacy

Doctoral students must advance to candidacy within 36 months from start date or they may be withdrawn. Extension of this period may be permitted by the Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies in exceptional circumstances. Graduate programs submit this form to confirm that a student has met candidacy requirements.

Graduate programs: Please enter the student’s supervisory committee in the Supervisory Committee screen in SISC before sending in the Advancement to Candidacy form. If you are sure the committee is final, please also click "Request for this committee to be approved".
