Use this form to:

  • Request an extension to your program time limits.

Students who have reached the maximum time allowed for their program, as stipulated by the Senate of the University, must submit this form to their Faculty Graduate Committee/Representative to petition for an extension of their program time limits. Up to 3 terms extension of these time limits may be approved at the Department level by the Graduate Officer. Further extensions must be approved at the Faculty level by the Associate Dean, Graduate Studies. (see Graduate Studies Calendar – Regulations – Enrolment and Time Limits).

If a Petition for Extension of the Program Time Limit is not submitted and approved by the close of Registration (Fall-September 30, Winter-January 30, Spring-May 30), students will be automatically discontinued from their program. In such cases an academic decision of Required to Withdraw will be applied to the student’s academic record and reapplication to the program for a future term will be required.
