Time Limit

All requirements for the master’s degree must be completed within six calendar years, beginning with the date the student commences courses carrying graduate credit applicable to the degree program, unless a more restrictive time limit has been established by the academic college/school or program. The term limit remains at six (6) years even if a student was on approved leave of absence during the six-year period.
