Graduate Student Academic Progress
Both your program and the Graduate School require that you maintain a reasonable rate of progress. Academic progress begins with matriculation into a program and concludes with the awarding of a degree or certificate.
Reasonable rate of progress is governed by both the campuswide policies of the Graduate School and academic program regulations, which may be more restrictive. Dismissal on account of failure to satisfy the Graduate School's rate of progress policies is handled by the Request for Extension.
