Time for Completion of Degree


Normally a student will complete all requirements for the master’s degree within four years of matriculation. Extension of time for a student in regular attendance may be granted in exceptional circumstances upon recommendation by the departmental Graduate Committee and approval of the dean. However, a student who has been absent from the College for more than five years must reapply for admission to the program. All previous credits will be reevaluated by the graduate advisor and the remaining courses necessary for completion of the degree will be determined.
