Oral and written exams give faculty members better understanding of the student’s academic ability, prospect, and future goals. Students may be asked to take additional courses. Failure to meet all stipulations could result in the rescinding of admission. For Th.D. students, all are granted probationary admission (see Th.D. Program).
