# PhD Manual

The Faculty has changed the comprehensive paper requirement to comprehensive exam for students who began their PhD study in September 2018. As a result, we have prepared two versions of the 2019-2020 PhD Program Manual:

Version 1: With Comprehensive Paper Requirements, prior to September 2018. This version is for students who began their PhD study prior to September 2018 and did not opt in to the new comprehensive exam requirement.

Version 2: With Comprehensive Exam Requirements, as of September 2018. This version is for students who began their PhD study in September 2018.
