Time Limit

In any graduate program, all work submitted for a degree (including the comprehensive examination) must be completed within a continuous six-year period. It is expected that the student will complete the program with reasonable continuity. Students called into military service, stricken by serious illness, or the like may apply for an extension of time.

Former North Georgia graduate students who have been absent from a program for 18 months or more will reenter under the graduate bulletin that is currently in effect.
