Annual Progress Evaluation

The Graduate School requires all graduate programs to complete an annual evaluation of progress toward degree for each graduate student (section 3.3 in the NC State Graduate Handbook). This evaluation process should involve the student, at least one academic advisor/committee chair, and the DGP. As part of each annual evaluation, the student’s major advisor should review the POW to evaluate progress, suggest potential revisions, and provide guidance as appropriate. Each evaluation must include the following items:

  1. The student’s report of activities and achievements for the preceding year (e.g., courses, honors, milestones achieved, and professional development)
  2. The student’s own evaluation of his or her progress
  3. An evaluative response to the student’s progress report by at least one faculty advisor/committee chair
  4. A completed Graduate Plan of Work (see SSC POW requirements).
