Information about the December 2014 comprehensive exam should be coming within the next few weeks. Please DO NOT send in Comp-Exam RSVP forms at this point :) I know you're excited (and want to be ahead of the game) but wait until I post comp-exam info :) It's better if you have all the info before you RSVP (and the form might change) :)

Please make sure you check your UMB email account for important information from the university. You may set up a email forwarding in wiser.
