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 dean of the Graduate School, 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.
