Extensions

A request for an extension is distinct from an appeal process: a request for extension is the appropriate course of action when a student has failed to meet the time frames associated with degree programs.

Request for Extension

A request for extension is the appropriate course of action when a student has failed to meet satisfactory progress provisions of the Graduate School.

When there has been unsatisfactory progress with respect to meeting Graduate Faculty Senate’s time to degree limits, the student may file a written request for an extension with the dean of the Graduate School. The extension must be endorsed by the department/program’s director of graduate studies and the student’s major advisor and include a timeline for completion of the degree. If an extension is granted by the associate vice chancellor, the student will be given a specified period of time to meet the requirements for progress to degree. Please contact the Graduate School for more information.
