Annual Progress Review
There are 3 components to the Annual Progress Review:
1) Progress Summary
The Progress Summary is a one page written report completed by the student and submited to the Senior Supervisor and the Supervisory Committee one week before the Supervisory Committee Meeting. The Progress Summary is part of the Annual Progress Report (see below).
Department of Physics Unsatisfactory Progress Policy
The policy is intended to clarify the implementation of Graduate General Regulation 1.8.2 “Review of Unsatisfactory Progress” in the Department of Physics.
A student may be found to be making unsatisfactory progress if either a) their CGPA falls below 3.0, or b) they receive an assessment of unsatisfactory progress on their annual progress report from the supervisory committee that is also found to be unsatisfactory by the GPC. In making a determination of whether a student's progress is unsatisfactory, the GPC will invite the student to meet with the GPC to present their research progress and consult with the supervisory committee on the student's progress.
In the first instance of unsatisfactory progress of either type a) or b), the GPC will usually determine a plan with the student and the supervisory committee to give a path for the student to return to satisfactory progress towards their degree. In the event of a second instance of unsatisfactory progress, the student may be required to withdraw from the graduate program.
