Chapter III. Graduate Regulations

500.Graduate Admission. An applicant for graduate admission on the Los Angeles campus is expected to hold a Bachelor's degree or its equivalent comparable in standard and content to a Bachelor's degree from the University of California. For graduate admission a grade average of B or better is normally required. (See Divisional Regulation A-300 for provisional admission of Departmental Scholars.)
502.Standards of Scholarship. Graduate students must maintain at least a B average in all courses taken in graduate status, and in all courses applicable to Master's degrees.
504.Classification of Graduate Courses
 (A)Courses numbered in the 200-299, 400-499, and 596-599 series are ordinarily open only to students who have completed at least 18 upper division quarter units basic to the subject matter of the course. Graduate courses and seminars which are primarily research-oriented will be numbered in the 200 series and they can be designated by departments or other proper authorities to fulfill the minimum graduate course requirement of any advanced degree. All graduate courses especially designed for programs leading to graduate degrees other than the M.A., M.S., and Ph.D. will be numbered in the 400 series. These may not be used to satisfy the minimum graduate course requirements for M.A. or M.S. degrees.
 (B)All graduate individual study or research courses will be numbered 596 (directed individual study or research); 597 (preparation for the comprehensive examination for the Master's degree or the qualifying examination for the Ph.D.); 598 (research for and preparation of the Master's thesis); 599 (research for and preparation of the doctoral dissertation).
 (C)Individual study courses numbered 596, 597, 598, 599 may be graded "Satisfactory" (S) or "Unsatisfactory" (U) or by all presently approved variations of letter grades or their substitutes, and each department shall inform the Graduate Council in advance which of these courses are to be so graded. Individual departments shall specify the number of 500 series courses that may, with the approval of the Graduate Council, apply either toward the divisional or departmental minimum course requirements for the Master's degree. Departments shall specify also the number of times an individual may enroll in any one of these courses. (See also Chapter 1, Section 4. Grades.)
 (D)Courses numbered 300-399 are professional courses and pre-professional experience, not applicable toward advanced degree requirements.
505.Final Examinations in Graduate Courses
 (A)The instructor in charge of a graduate course shall be responsible for assigning the final grade in the course. The final grade shall reflect the student's achievement in the course and shall be based upon adequate evaluation of that achievement. The instructor's methods of evaluation must be announced at the beginning of the course. The methods may include in final written examination, a term paper, a final oral examination, a take-home examination, or other evaluation device. Evaluation methods must be of reasonable duration and difficulty, and must be in accord with applicable Academic Senate and departmental policies. Final written examinations shall not exceed three hours' duration and shall be given only at the times and places established by the departmental Chair and the Registrar.
 (B)An instructor shall, if he/she so wishes, release to individual students their original final examinations (or copies). This may be done by any method which insures the student's right to privacy. Otherwise, the instructor shall retain final examination materials, or a copy thereof, until the end of the next succeeding regular quarter of instruction, during which period students shall have access to their examinations.  [En 12 Apr 83]
506.Academic Residence. A graduate student shall be considered in academic residence if, during any University term, the student is registered for and completes a minimum of one course or the equivalent of 4 quarter units of upper division or graduate work.

Under the Capstone Plan (Plan II), students complete a capstone requirement, which may be a comprehensive exam, an individual project or a group project. The major department (or by the committee responsible for an interdepartmental degree program) establishes the type(s) of capstone experience(s) that will satisfy this requirement, subject to approval by the Graduate Council, and is responsible for establishing the mode(s) of evaluation. The capstone requirement must be completed and approved by the end of the academic term in which the candidate expects the degree to be awarded.

Comprehensive exam: The nature and timing of the comprehensive exam must be approved by the faculty of the department or interdepartmental degree program and published in the program requirements. A committee of at least three faculty members appointed by the department (or interdepartmental degree program) will administer and determine satisfactory performance on the comprehensive examination.

Individual and group projects: Capstone projects must be completed under a course rubric approved by the Graduate Council. The instructor of record and at least two additional faculty members appointed by the department (or interdepartmental degree program) will determine satisfactory performance on the project. For group projects, there must be a mechanism for identifying and evaluating the contributions of each participating student who is a candidate for the master’s degree.

This can be done by passing a series of written examinations or by other methods specified by the student's department or interdepartment program. The nature of this written evidence must be approved by the Graduate Council.

In addition, the student is required to pass an oral examination administered by the doctoral committee. The doctoral committee also has the option of requiring additional written examinations. The oral qualifying examination is open only to the members of the doctoral committee and the student. Only upon satisfactory completion of the written and oral qualifying requirements, is the student advanced to candidacy.

An academic unit may, if it wishes, release to individual graduate students their original written qualifying examinations. Otherwise, the academic units shall retain these examination materials at least until the end of the next succeeding regular quarter of instruction, during which period students shall have access to their examinations.   [Am 12 Apr 83]
