Classified standing is accorded to graduate students in history when they have satisfied the following criteria:
- A written request to the Department Graduate Coordinator for classification, which must be approved by the Department Graduate Committee;
- Completion of a minimum of 15 quarter units in graduate residence, 10 of which must be earned in HIST 501 and HIST 503. The remaining 5 units must be earned in a 500-level graduate course. A minimum 3.25 grade point average is required in these courses. Classification CAN be required by the History Department BEFORE more than 15 units are taken;
- Successful completion of History 300 or its equivalent;
Advanced to Candidacy - Classified students who have maintained a 3.25 GPA will be advanced to candidacy in the term in which they intend to graduate
