New workflow for preliminary written exam

| No Comments

Effective Friday, March 1, the process for reporting Preliminary Written Examination (PWE) results to Graduate Student Services and Progress (GSSP) will be automated with a new online workflow.

The new process will be initiated by a Plan Level Coordinator (PLC) or Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) and reported directly to Academic Support Services for PeopleSoft entry and archiving in ImageNow; students will no longer submit a paper form to GSSP.

In addition to the new workflow, committee members now have the option to "pass with reservations." If a student is passed with reservations, he or she must comply with all components of the revised Doctoral Degree: Performance Standards and Progress policy. To remove reservations, a new form must be submitted and the option "remove reservations" must be checked. Students will receive an automatic notification alerting them of their status (with optional notifications to adviser(s), PLS, DGS, and CC).

The current PWE form (.PDF) will be removed from the Graduate Studies website and replaced with the new workflow link and "Information for Faculty and Staff" page under "Tools".

If you have questions regarding this notice, please contact Stacia Madsen at or 612-625-0168. Full contact information is available at
