How to schedule a PhD comprehensive examination


You will need approx. 5-6 weeks to set up your PhD Comprehensive Examination:

  • 1-2 weeks to communicate with the members of your committee in order to find a date and time that suits everyone,
  • 4 weeks prior to the proposed date of your PhD Comprehensive Examination, you will need to fill out the appropriate paperwork and submit it to the Administrative Coordinator, Graduate Studies, in E2-2328A.

Please review the EGSO PhD Comprehensive Examination webpage for a detailed breakdown of the comp exam timing, research proposal, booking the comp, and the comp exam evaluation.
