Time Limit Policies

Back to Program Handbook

The University stipulates that all degree requirements must be completed within seven years (or five years for those who enter with a Master's degree) from the time the student first enrolled in the MQM Program. The University also states that students who extend their stay beyond this time limit will be required to recomplete the comprehensive exams.

Students who are not in compliance with these time limits are required to fill out the Request for Extension of Time form. Requests for an extension require the approval of the student’s advisor, the Dean’s Office, and the Graduate School. If a second request is initiated, the student must provide a detailed, written explanation regarding the reasons for insufficiency of the first time extension to complete the degree requirements, and any circumstances that warrant an additional extension. Each extension period is for one or two semesters only. No more than two extensions will be granted. Students are responsible for initiating and completing extension requests prior to the exhaustion of previous time deadlines.
