Masters students must complete degree
requirements no later than five years from the date of earning or
transferring credit, unless the period is extended through student
petition. Petitions are approved by the student’s department and the dean
of the School of Graduate Studies and Research.
Doctoral candidates must complete degree
requirements no later than seven years after beginning IUP doctoral program
course work. No time extensions are considered for doctoral students unless all
degree requirements other than the dissertation (including the approval of the
research topic and IRB, if needed) have been completed by the expiration of the
seven-year time limit.
