To prepare for this review, students meet with their advisors and then submit revised worksheets recording their progress on program requirements, and fill out a form describing their achievements during the past year, their plans for the next, and any issues or problems they wish to bring to the attention of the faculty. Students also submit an updated Curriculum Vitae. The faculty reviews every file systematically and makes comments or recommendations regarding each student’s progress toward the degree. These are communicated in the form of an advising appointment and/or a letter from the student’s program advisor. Students are encouraged to make appointments with their advisors to follow-up on any needed items or issues raised during the review.
