It is possible to complete all coursework and requirements for the master of fine arts, master of music, and doctor of musical arts degrees in three years (six semesters) of continuous registration and coursework. The time limit for students matriculated in any graduate degree program at Mason Gross School of the Arts to complete all requirements and coursework is no more than five years or 10 semesters (fall/spring) of registration.
Students who have interrupted their
graduate registration without completing their degree program and who failed to
register for Matriculation Continued must apply for reinstatement to resume
their studies. Under the reinstatement process, students must pay a reinstatement
fee for each semester in which they were not enrolled and fill out the
appropriate reinstatement forms. These forms, which are available online or from
the Office of the Dean, require the signature of the graduate program director or adviser
and dean of students. The current fee
for Mason Gross School of the Arts is $750 per semester missed.
