As approved by Senate in September 2003, it is a mandatory policy that all graduate students are to complete mandatory progress reporting for each year that they are a registered student in a Graduate-level Thesis or Research Program with the university.
In compliance with this policy, all students are advised that they must meet with their supervisors at the beginning of each academic year to complete and submit the Graduate Student Progress Report to the Department. This report is to be submitted no later than the September 30th of each year.*
This Graduate Student Progress Report must be signed by both the student and their supervisor(s). Copies should be kept by both parties while the original form is to be kept in the student’s file with the Department. This is to be submitted to the student’s Graduate Program Advisor/Coordinator by the deadline.
Students are to review each year’s previous report during their annual meeting with their supervisor in order to assess the student’s progress towards objectives and goals, and to set the upcoming academic year’s goals.
In the event that a student may not be progressing according to the objectives set out in the “Graduate Student Progress Report”, interim meetings should be held to review any issues that have arisen.
The Graduate Student Progress Report, along with policies related to completing this form, can be found on the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website.
*Please note: Certain programs require separate program-specific Annual/Progress Reports that are to be completed by the student and their supervisor that may be required in addition to or in place of the provided Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies form above. As well, deadline dates for submission may vary by program. Please be sure to verify your program's specific requirements so as to be in compliance with their particular policies.
