Graduate students must complete the program of study within seven calendar years from the date of acceptance into a program of graduate studies. Students admitted to a degree program are expected to enroll continuously until the program is complete. Continuous enrollment is defined as completing a minimum of six credits per academic year, including Summer sessions, at Holy Family University. Failure to maintain continuous enrollment may affect progress toward degree completion. The timeline of seven years for degree completion will not be extended for students who fail to maintain continuous enrollment.
Students who fail to complete the program of study within the prescribed seven-year period must file a petition for extension with the School Dean. Recommendations concerning requests for a program extension and those conditions governing it will be made by the School Dean to the Vice President for Academic Affairs after consultation with the student and relevant personnel within the school of study. The Vice President for Academic Affairs approves all requests for program extensions and communicates the final decision to the student. Coursework that falls outside the seven-year limit for degree completion is subject to program review and possible repetition.
Students who fail to enroll in courses for a period of two years or longer will be required to apply for readmission to graduate studies. Students readmitted in this way will be bound by program requirements in effect at the time of readmission. Not all coursework previously completed in a given program may be applicable to degree completion under new/revised program requirements in effect at the time of readmission.
