- *Qualifying Exam* (offered before the start of each Fall quarter)

** in two of the three areas**: Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, and Algebra. At most, one pass can stem from a Comprehensive exam. This only applies to students who were asked to take Math 205 or Math 206 (see below).

Students may not attempt to pass an exam in any particular area more than three times.

Some students may require additional background before entering Math 210 or Math 230. This will be determined by assessment prior to the start of students' first year by the Vice Chair of Graduate Studies, upon consultation with the Graduate Studies Committee. Such students will be directed into Math 205 and/or Math 206 during their first year.

**PhD Students**

__ By the start of the second year__, students must achieve at least

- ** 2 M.S. level passes** among three Exams in Real Analysis, Complex Analysis and Algebra.

__ By the start of the third year__, students must achieve

- ** 2 Ph.D. level passes** among three Exams in Real Analysis, Complex Analysis and Algebra.

To satisfy these exam requirements, students may take the

- *Core Assessment Exam* (offered in the Spring of every year) or the

- *Qualifying Exam* (offered before the start of the fall quarter) or the

- *Comprehensive Exam* (only grants a MS pass, offered in the Spring every year): at most one*******

*Please Note: corresponding qualifying exam coursework (210,220,230) cannot be used to satisfy both exam and coursework requirements.*

*******Some students may require additional background prior to entering Math 210 and 230. This will be determined by assessment prior to the start of the students’ first year by the Vice Chair for Graduate Studies, upon consultation with the graduate studies committee. Such students will be directed into Math 205 and/or Math 206, or equivalent, during their first year. (The summer Jumpstart Program, August-September, covers Math 205/206). These students (only) may pass one Comprehensive Exam in the areas of Algebra or Analysis in lieu of achieving a M.S. pass on one Core Assessment or Qualifying Exam that must be obtained prior to the start of the students’ second year.
