All requirements for the M.S. and M.Eng. degrees must be completed within eight years of being admitted to the Acoustics Program as a degree student. All requirements for the Ph.D. degree must be completed within eight years of passing the Candidacy Examination.
Extensions to the eight year limit may be granted by the Director of Graduate Enrollment Services. Students seeking an extension must petition the Acoustics Program Chair, who if circumstances warrant, will request an extension from Graduate Enrollment Services. The student's petition must include an explanation for why the extension is needed, a time line for degree completion, and a supporting letter from the student's advisor. Under only the most extraordinary circumstances will the Acoustics Program consider an extension of more than two years.
