COM 797 Qualifying Examination (1)

Required of all doctoral students who are taking doctoral qualifying exams. Doctoral students will register for COM 797 in the semester in which they are actually taking both the written and oral portions of the qualifying examination. This one credit hour does not apply to the coursework (pre-qualifying examination) aspect of the individual degree program. The grading option for the course is pass/no pass. Students who do not initially pass all questions of the qualifying examination will be allowed with the recommendation of the qualifying exam committee and the approval of the chair of the doctoral program to retake those questions the following semester. Only one retake is permitted; an IP will be posted until the examination is completed.
