SHBT students are required to take the SHBT Oral Qualifying Exam by Oct 31st of G3 (See G2 section for details about the QE). After passing the Oral Qualifying Exam, students may devote full-time to their dissertation research.

Students are encouraged to submit their Dissertation Advisor Committee (DAC) Proposal Form three months after passing their QE (Feb of G3), with the actual first DAC meeting taking place no more than 4 months later (June of G3). Note that a student is not allowed to register for the fourth year if they have not passed the qualifying examination.
