Students admitted to a GWSB graduate program are allowed no more than five years from the point of matriculation to complete all degree requirements and graduate. If it becomes apparent that a student will not complete all degree requirements and
graduate within the time allowed, the student may petition Graduate Programs for an extension of time to complete their degree.
To request an extension of time, students must complete a Policy Exception Request and submit the form to their academic
advisor for review. If approved, the student must maintain appropriate registration during the authorized period of extension. Please be aware, personal leaves of absence are not allowed during the approved extension period.
