Maximum Timeframe for Completing Degree Requirements
- Students are expected to complete their program of study (degree) in the number of semesters indicated in the catalog. Transfer students and students changing programs are placed in an appropriate semester on the basis of credits transferred. Such students are expected to complete their degree according to the remaining semesters in their program plus one additional semester to allow for scheduling difficulties.
- The maximum timeframe for completing degree requirements is three years for MBA degree candidates and seven years for Master degree and Doctoral program candidates. Transfer credits earned at other institutions that are applicable to the student’s program of study will be considered in determining the student’s maximum time frame for program completion.
Students must make quantitative progress (pace of completion) and qualitative progress (minimum cumulative grade point average) toward their educational goals each academic year to receive aid. The academic year consists of the summer sessions and two regular semesters (Fall and Spring).
