Graduate Degree: What is the Time Limit for Completing One's Graduate Degree?

To ensure that your program remains relevant and up-to-date, the Graduate School sets time limits for graduating. You have five (5) consecutive years from the start of your graduate degree, dual degree or graduate certificate program to complete your program requirements.

If you are in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, you have five (5) consecutive years to complete your degree requirements.

For more about completing your graduate program, see the University of Maryland University College Policy for Degree Completion Requirements for the Graduate School policy. If you are concerned that you may not graduate within the appropriate time-frame, contact your Graduate School Academic Advisor
