UAB - Graduate School - Candidacy Deadlines
 

The Graduate School has the below candidacy deadline dates for all Plan I students.  Doctoral students are required to have a minimum of two (2) semesters in candidacy while master’s students are required to have a minimum of one (1) semester in candidacy.  This paperwork must be processed by the appropriate deadline in order to be applicable for that semester.  For example, if your admission to candidacy is processed by the Fall 2017 deadline of August 25, 2017, that semester counts as your first semester in candidacy.
