Graduate Degree Completion Timeframe

Students must submit a formal graduation application via MyWings by the deadline date listed in the Academic Calendar published online.

 Work required for a degree must be completed and certification of completion must be posted in the UNF student record system prior to the college approving the candidates for their degrees. For all course work completed at institutions other than UNF, official transcripts are the only acceptable certification of completion. For applicable transcripts to be posted prior to the UNF certification deadline in a given semester, they must be received by the Graduate School on or before the last day of UNF final examinations for that semester. Students who intend to complete course work at another institution to satisfy UNF degree requirements must obtain formal approval and complete the courses prior to the term in which they intend to graduate to ensure sufficient time to process the transcript.

 All coursework for a graduate or post-baccalaureate professional degree must be completed within six years of a master's degree-seeking student being admitted to a graduate program. All coursework for a doctoral degree must be completed within eight years. All exceptions must be approved by the student's Graduate Program Director and the Dean of the Graduate School.
