Section 7.2 of the Graduate School Handbook
The Graduate Studies Committee of certain programs may require students to take preliminary or qualifying examinations prior to taking the candidacy examination. These examinations are under the jurisdiction of the Graduate Studies Committee, and results are not reported to the Graduate School. Although successful completion of such examinations may be a prerequisite for taking the candidacy examination, these examinations are not part of the candidacy examination.
