Chapter 7A: Maximum Time Limits for Completion of Master’s Degree

Most full-time students enrolled in master’s degree programs at WSU require 2-3 years for completion of their program. The Graduate School recognizes some programs are designed for the part-time student and can be expected to require a longer completion period. The maximum time allowed for completion of a master’s degree is 6 years from the beginning date of the earliest course applied toward the degree. As appropriate, departments may request an extension of this time limit as described in Chapter 6.F.
