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 at www.grad.sunysb.edu [mg1] . 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.
