PURPOSE OF THIS FORM
The Time Limit Extension may be filed when a student nears the end of the time limitation for completion of the
requirements for their degree but needs more time to complete the degree. Time limits are specified in the Graduate
Catalog corresponding to the year the student was admitted (or readmitted) to the program. Time Limit Extensions
are separate from readmission to the program or readmission to candidacy but may need to be submitted prior to
requesting the extension. Time Limit Extensions are valid for a maximum period of two (2) years from the date of
request (see Graduate Catalog) but may only be requested one time.
IMPORTANT GRADUATE SCHOOL POLICES
· Courses: A time limit extension also extends the time limit on courses applied to the degree.
