Requirements for the Degree:

I. Time Limits for Degrees

The course-type master’s program is designed to be completed in 18 months to 2 years.

A thesis master's program should be designed so that it can be completed in 2-3 years. The University requires that master’s degree be completed within 7 years from the time the student first registers for graduate credit.

A doctoral program should be more flexible than the master’s degrees. The University requires that the degree be completed within 5 calendar years from the time the student gains admittance to candidacy by passing the Preliminary Examination.
