Students must complete all requirements for a master’s degree within six years of their first term of registration in the program. Students who are unable to complete their degree within the six-year limit may petition the Graduate School of Management for an extension; Request for Extension of Time forms are available on the Graduate School of Management forms website. To ensure timely consideration, the Extension of Time form should be filed early in the term in which the time limit expires. If the extension is approved, students are notified of the expectations for progress and completion of the degree. If the extension is denied, students are terminated from the graduate program.
Failure to complete the program or to obtain an approved extension of time may result in an administrative withdrawal from the program. These students must follow the guidelines for readmission (see Readmission).
