Midpoint and Final Review Showcase

Getting Started

This site is intended to help AAU graduate students prepare for their Midpoint Review and Final Review. It contains preparation instructions from each department, for both online and onsite students, as well as examplary midpoints and finals from former students.

About halfway through their studies, graduate students required to take and pass a midpoint reivew, in which they propose to a faculty panel the thesis or portfolio work they wish to complete for their final review. Passage of the midpoint review enables students to enter specialized one-on-one directed study to complete their final thesis or portfolio. For their final reivew, students must present their work to a faculty panel for approval. Passage of the final review is a requirement for graduation.
