Each student is responsible for scheduling the examination in cooperation with the examining committee, taking into consideration Graduate School deadlines (available in the UMD Graduate School office, 431 Darland Administration Building) and English Graduate Program policies:
Exams will be given twice a year, near the end of fall and spring semesters.
The written portions of the exam will be taken on two days beginning on Monday of the twelfth week through Thursday on the thirteenth week of the semester. All written portions of the exam must be completed no later than Friday of the thirteenth week.
The oral component of the exam is given on the fourth working day following completion of the written portions of the exam. This means that no oral will be taken before Monday of the thirteenth week or later than Thursday of the fourteenth week.
