Graduate students are expected to maintain adequate progress or they will be required to withdraw from the program. Progress includes timely completion of required course work, progress to candidacy according to the program’s candidacy timeline, and steady and meaningful work on the thesis. Supervisors and graduate program directors should ensure, through annual progress reports and otherwise, that the student is informed in writing about concerns regarding progress.
The Faculty of Graduate Studies, after consultation with the graduate program director and/or supervisory committee concerned, may initiate the withdrawal of a student for failure to maintain progress.
Annual Student Progress Report
Each thesis-based graduate student must file an annual progress report with their graduate program, typically during the month of May every year (the time may vary by program). Delinquent students may be denied registration.
The annual progress report is accessed from the online Student Centre at my.ucalgary.ca.
