Master’s Comprehensive Exam: Each student must pass the Master’s Comprehensive Exam. This exam is given during the Fall
and Spring semesters and it is the responsibility of the student to register for the test with the department. For students who are
doing the MS thesis option, the final thesis defense before the faculty committee constitutes the student’s comprehensive exam.
Comprehensive Exam: (1) Coordinator: _____________________ Semester: _____________(Pass/Fail)
(2) Coordinator: _____________________ Semester: _____________(Pass/Fail)
(3) Coordinator: _____________________ Semester: _____________(Pass/Fail)

One copy will be maintained in the CS Dept. Changes must be done with timely approvals, this is the student's responsibility. This version is effective Fall 2016.
Notes:
1. Maximum number of credits: The department advises the maximum number of credits to be 10
credits/semester (or 3 courses/semester) during the first semester of studies in the program, and
13 credits/semester (or 4 courses/semester) for the other semesters.
2. Clearance of prerequisite courses: The prerequisite courses of CSCI 515 and CSCI 502 may be
waived if one passes the prerequisite deficiency tests/exams that are usually held on and/or before
during the orientation week (i.e., the weeks prior to the first week of classes). The first semester
of studies is a student’s only chance to take the deficiency exams. The prerequisite courses are
required for any student who are not waived during the first semester in the program, and the
student is not allowed to drop the prerequisite courses.
3. Comprehensive exam: To complete the degree, one pursuing the non-thesis option should pass the
comprehensive exam that is offered twice a year in Fall and Spring semesters. Officially there are
two chances to take the comprehensive exam; the third attempt may be given upon the
department consent by processing the “3rd attempt” form. The department reveals the overall
exam scores only to those who fail the exam. One can appeal and request re-evaluating the test
only once during one’s study. The student needs to fill and submit the “third attempt form” to the
graduate adviser by the end (Friday) of the first week of the semester that the student intends to
take the comprehensive exam.
