If a student needs longer than the regulation time set out in D.6.1, they may request an extension to their program deadline. Requests must include a rationale and a detailed schedule for program completion that has been reviewed by the student's supervisor, if applicable, and Graduate Program Director. The extension request forms can be found on the Faculty of Graduate Studies website.
Extension requests are subject to Faculty of Graduate Studies review. If an extension is not approved, the student's original program deadline will stand, and a student may be required to withdraw for reaching maximum time in program.
For programs that require shorter completion time than the Faculty of Graduate Studies maximum, requests for extension may be granted by the program.
