Time Limitations for Completing Degree Requirements
All requirements for the Master's degree and Educational Specialist degree must be completed within six calendar years, beginning with the first semester of enrollment in courses for graduate credit. Graduate courses taken more than six (6) years prior to completion of all degree requirements must be repeated in order to be included in the credit hour requirement for the degree, except in certain substantiated cases of extreme hardship.
Credits earned more than ten (10) years prior to the student's graduation cannot be applied toward meeting requirements for the Ed.D. or Ph.D. degrees.
The Application for Graduation should be completed by the deadline. If the student does not graduate in the semester for which the application was made; another application must be submitted for the intended semester of graduation. Click here for the on-line Graduation Application.
