Academic Plan and Progress Report

The school requires all doctoral students to complete an academic plan in the fall, and a progress report in the spring. These reports (which should be pre-approved by the chair of your dissertation committee) are reviewed by the director of doctoral studies, who then sends a notification to the school about satisfactory or unsatisfactory progress per student. This is part of a school-wide strategy for more closely monitoring the students' progress towards the completion of their degree.

The plan should focus upon your goals and expectations for doctoral study over the academic year. On your plan in the upper left handside, please identify the program and year, your advisor and mentor, part time or full time status. The plan might further include information about:

1. coursework expectations
2, research papers (conferences, articles, peer reviewed journals) and creative work
3. teaching and research assistance
4. service to the program, department and school
5. timelines for completion (candidacy, topic, proposal, and dissertation deadlines)
6. other pertinent information concerning your academic progress

Your Academic Plan should be no longer than a page and should be posted at NYU Classes by the November collegium. Please note that this deadline will be strictly enforced). Ideally you would meet with your advisor/mentor in the preparation of the plan, and secure his/her approval.

In the spring students submit a progress report.

The Progress Report should focus upon your achievement of goals and expectations for doctoral study over the academic year. On the upper left hand side of your report, please identify the program, your advisor and mentor, part time or full time status.
Your Progress Report should be no longer than a page and should be posted at NYU Classes (at the Progress Report link) no later than the April collegium. Ideally you would meet with your advisor/mentor in the preparation of the report.

Upload your report through the Assignments link available via the course menu on the NYU Classes Collegium website.
