A graduate degree is to be completed within a six-year time period. If requirements for a degree cannot be completed within six years, the student may submit a Petition for an Extension of Time to Complete a Master’s Degree.
- The petition must explain why the degree cannot be completed within the prescribed time limit and must present a time schedule for completing the program.
- Time extensions will be considered only in unusual and justifiable circumstances.
- The petitioner will be required to appear before the Graduate Council to present a justification.
- An extension of time shall be at the discretion of the Council.
