Graduate Studies General Regulations Time Limits for Completion of Programs


Time Limits for Completion of Programs

Effective for students admitted September 1, 2013 and all subsequent years:

Masterís programs are designed and approved such that requirements can be completed within one year (3 terms) or two years (6 terms) of initial full-time registration in the program. Doctoral programs are designed and approved such that requirements can be completed within four years (12 terms) of initial full-time registration in the program. This standard timeframe for doctoral programs may not account for discipline-related (for example, required internships, archival research or fieldwork) or individual circumstances that can extend the time to completion. When circumstances are discipline-related, the Department/Program may grant to all doctoral students an extension to five years (15 terms), otherwise extensions may be granted to individual students by the Department/Program no later than two weeks prior to the end of term 13 of a PhD program. Extensions for Master's students may be granted by the Department/Program no later than two week prior to the end of term 4 or 7 of a one- or two-year Master's program, respectively. All extensions follow the Extension of Time Limits policy.

NOTE: The academic year is divided into 3 terms: Fall (September-December), Winter (January-April) and Summer (May-August). Each term is 4 months long.
