Comprehensive Exams

When do I take my comps?

Comprehensive exams should be taken following completion of course work and prior to the official beginning of the dissertation.

The HIED program provides the student with the choice of taking the exam on campus (e.g., two four-hour days) or in a "take-home" format. For additional details regarding Comprehensive Exams, refer to the College's Graduate Handbook.
