Third year students to remain in good standing should submit the Preliminary Portfolio Examination or Preliminary Written Examination to DGS Assistant Marie Milsten Fiedler by 4:30 p.m., Monday, March 30, 2009.
Preliminary Portfolio Examination/Preliminary Written Examination Deadlines
Beginning in the fall of 2007, current students (Fall 2004, 2005, 2006 Cohorts) will have 2 options for the prelim process: 1) Preliminary Examination or 2) Preliminary Portfolio. Students entering in fall 2007 or after will fulfill the Preliminary Portfolio requirement only.
The written Preliminary Portfolio Exam will be completed by the second semester of the third year. (If a student, with the permission of his/her adviser, cannot complete the written exam by that point then he/she will need to request permission for an extension from the DGS).
Students should develop preliminary portfolio materials in consultation with their committee members.
