2020-2021 Graduate Catalog

Time Limitations

All requirements submitted in fulfillment of a Master’s or Specialist in Education degree must be completed within a period of eight years. Coursework for the Certificate in Instructional Technology must be taken within three years. In the event a student has already completed a required course taken before the eight-year time period, the academic advisor and graduate student may agree to substitute another graduate level course which would complement the student’s program. This substitution must be submitted to the Graduate Office in writing. No coursework older than eight years will be counted toward the degree. These limitations will be extended only for the period of active duty of students entering the military service. The student must submit a petition upon his or her return from military service.
