Time Limits for the Completion of Degree Requirements


Time limits for the completion of degree requirements begin with the date of matriculation. The University time limit is ten consecutive semesters to complete the degree requirements for students entering a master’s degree program. Students completing the requirements for the master’s degree who are subsequently granted permission to continue toward the doctoral degree are given an additional ten consecutive semesters. Students entering a doctoral program with a master’s degree are given ten consecutive semesters to complete the requirements. Students entering a doctoral program without a master’s degree are given fourteen consecutive semesters to complete the requirements. Students who change their degree plan and have transferred from one degree program to another degree program are given ten consecutive semesters from the beginning of the first year in the latest program.
