Refer to university policy regarding time limitations. If students wish to apply for an extension of the time limit, they must submit a petition to their department of study. The petition must include a detailed plan for completion of all remaining degree requirements. In the case of master’s degree time limit extension requests for course work, the department must certify that the content of each of the courses has not changed since the time the student completed the course. If deemed appropriate, the department will recommend a time limit extension to graduate student services. The associate dean for academic affairs has final approval of time limit extensions.
