“7 Year Rule”

All course work applied to the Master’s Degree including the Master's Project/Portfolio, must be completed within a seven year time period (excluding approved leaves of absence). In the event that enrollment exceeds seven years, the student will be required to retake courses that have expired. This timeline also applies to courses accepted in transfer from other institutions. Students using Federal Financial Aid should also refer to the shorter timelines that are described in the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy in this catalog.
