Students must complete all program requirements towards master’s degrees within five calendar years from the time of initial registration exclusive of approved leaves of absence.

 

Leaves of Absence

Students with bona fide reasons, such as illness or parental leave, for not registering in 1.0 unit in any academic calendar year (September to August) must apply for a leave of absence from the program by submitting a Request for Leave of Absence Form, to the Dean of Graduate Studies, Chair of the Graduate Studies Program & Policy Committee, prior to the start of the term in which the leave begins. Prior to consideration of a leave of absence request students must discuss the request with their Thesis Supervisor (if applicable) and the Graduate Program Coordinator and establish a timeline for completion of their program of study. This timeline must be included with the request for a leave of absence. Students may normally be granted a leave for twelve months only once in their program. Students on leave of absence will not be permitted access to University services such as library privileges or e-mail nor be entitled to any kind of supervision during the period of their leave.

Extensions

Students who anticipate that they will be unable to complete program requirements within the five year time period must apply before the end of their fifth year. Prior to consideration of an extension request students must discuss the request with their Thesis Supervisor (if applicable) and the Graduate Program Coordinator and establish a timeline for completion of their program of study. This timeline must be included with the request for a program extension. Normally only students completing the thesis requirement will be granted an extension.
