Qualifying  Exams

Qualifying exams are given each August and January. The deadline to sign up is early November for January exams and early April for the August exams. (You can still sign up after these dates, but only if the exams you propose to take do not conflict with one another.)

If you intend to take a qualifying exam in January 2018, you may sign up via Google Forms. For access to the Google Sign-Up Form, please contact M. Cristina Garcia () before Thursday, January 4, 2018, at 12 pm.

January 2018 Exam Dates:

January 10: Analysis & Applied Statistics

January 12: Algebra & Probability

January 16: Geometry/Topology & Mathematical Statistics


Language Exams

The next language exam will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 9 am - 12 pm in Kirwan 3206 (Colloquium Room). The deadline for signing up is Friday, November 3, 2017 at 12 pm. 

Language Exams (in French, German and Russian) are administered each semester, usually on a Saturday in October or November and a Saturday in April. Students for whom Saturday exams present a religious problem should contact the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies, and an alternative arrangement will be made.

If you intend to take one of these exams, you may sign up via Google Forms. For access to the Google Sign-Up Form please email M. Cristina Garcia  before Friday, November 3rd.

If you are planning a graduation this year and have not yet passed a language exam, please make sure to take the exam this cycle.
