Time Limits


A student who has earned a master's degree prior to enrollment in the professional school must complete all the requirements of the program within seven years of matriculating as a Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) student, or within seven years of the beginning of any coursework beyond the master's degree to be counted toward the doctoral degree.

A student admitted to the doctoral program at the bachelor's degree level must complete all requirements of the program within eight years of the first registration as a GSAPP student.

Extensions may be granted by the department faculty only under extraordinary conditions as detailed in the policy statement printed in the GSAPP Student Handbook of Policies and Procedures. An approved leave of absence does not extend the time limitations for the degree. See Time Commitments in the doctor of psychology section of the Academic Programs chapter for the average number of years from entrance to graduation.
