Extensions

Extension due to exceptional circumstances:

Requests for an extension of time limits for program completion must be submitted to the Head, graduate registration and academic performance, at the FGPS through the academic unit, together with a detailed report on the student's progress and the recommendation of the supervisor and the director of graduate studies, at least one month before the student's time limit. Extensions are given only in exceptional circumstances (for instance, serious illness with a medical certificate confirmed by a licensed physician). They will normally not exceed one year and are granted only to students whose progress has been otherwise fully satisfactory. Students must provide proof that the major part of the thesis work is done. The relevant form, Request for Extension of the Time Limit to Complete the Requirements of a Graduate Degree, must be completed and submitted to the Graduate Studies Office.

Extension due to pregnancy, birth or adoption:

An extension of one year will be granted for every pregnancy, birth, or adoption occurring during the student’s program. Either parent can make the request. However, the total duration of the extension is one year for each birth or adoption, both parents combined. A birth or adoption certificate must be provided. The Request for Extension of the Time Limit to Complete the Requirements of a Graduate Degree form must be completed and submitted to the Gradaute Studies Office.
