To The Top

Exams (e.g., qualifying, comprehensive, thesis/dissertation defenses) are to be administered only when MU is officially in session. If an exam requires a written and oral section, both can only be administered during a regular semester session, i.e., the period between start and end date (including exam week) of Fall, Spring, and Summer sessions, excluding holidays and weekends. It is important to note that some faculty members are 9-month employees, thus a student and their advisor should discuss with committee members their availability for the comprehensive examination during the Summer session.
