Continuation beyond Normal Two Years


In the special case of a student having difficulty fulfilling degree requirements within two years, they may apply to the M.F.A. design director for a third year in which to complete the requirements. In some circumstances, the director or the faculty may recommend that a student continue beyond the second year. At the discretion of the M.F.A. design director, some facilities privileges may not be provided in the third year.

If the graduate thesis is the only requirement left unfilled and will be completed by October of the following academic year, the student need not register for a third year. However, if the thesis will not be completed until the end of the fall semester, the student must register for Matriculation Continued. Maintaining Matriculation Continued status until all requirements are completed is important to avoid problems of readmission. The time limit for completing the degree is four years from the start time of matriculation.
