Degree requirements and specifications
- Completion schedule: Students have a maximum of five years from entry into the program to complete coursework and submit a final, approved thesis. This includes time off for leaves-of-absence. If the thesis remains incomplete after the end of Thesis II, the student must pay a continuation fee each subsequent semester in order to retain active status. Thesis in Progress: Students who have not submitted a finished thesis for review and approval by the end of the final semester of enrollment are given a Thesis in Progress grade (IP). All students with a Thesis in Progress grade (IP) will be charged the Thesis in Progress Fee in each subsequent full semester until the thesis is completed and approved and the grade is changed to Credit (CR). If the statute of limitations is reached without an approved thesis, the grade will be changed to No Credit (NCR).
