Comprehensive Examination Process

This page provides information on the process and the necessary form for writing a Comprehensive Exam at UNBC.

The GR326: Comprehensive Examination Request form must be submitted to the Office of Graduate Programs at least 1 week prior to the date on which the student plans to write the exam.

Please Note:

  • The student is responsible to be currently registered for the semester in which they are attempting to finish their degree requirements.
  • Comprehensive examinations can be completed while other course work is still in progress; however, in no case shall the comprehensive examination grade (as per section 4.5.4 of the Graduate Calendar) be submitted until all outstanding course work has been graded. 
  • If you have not already done so, please complete an "Application for Graduation" form
