Time Limit

The candidate must satisfy all requirements for the D.M.A. degree within seven years after completing 24 graduate level credits at Stony Brook University.

  • The Request for Waiver of Graduate Time Limit form can be found by selecting the forms link from the Graduate School website. These petitions require the approval of the student’s advisor and graduate program director.
  • Requests for a time-limit extension must be filed before the limit is exceeded and must contain a significant justification.
  • The final decision rests with the Dean of the Graduate School, who may impose additional requirements.

In Response to COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus

In light of the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, all active Stony Brook University Graduate School students have been given a one year time limit extension to complete their degree requirements. These changes will not apply to subsequent terms.
