Timeline for completion of graduate level degree programs

Admitted graduate students are expected to complete their degree programs within five years of the onset of study. Students continuing beyond five years may be required to repeat course work. Students are cautioned that ordinarily, the applicability of graduate course work, regardless if the coursework is transferred in from a different institution or taken at William Woods University, to graduate degrees awarded by the University expires five years after completion of the course.


Doctoral students must complete all degree requirements five years from the date of successful passage of the comprehensive exam.
