General Deadlines Guidance

The following deadlines are specific to graduate students and are consistent through all three quarters:

The 2nd Friday of each quarter is the deadline to submit:

  • Half-time Study requests
  • Leave of Absence requests
  • In Absentia requests
  • Applications to Candidacy for the Master’s degree (in order to receive the Master’s in the same quarter)

The 4th Friday of each quarter is the deadline to submit requests to change a grading option, change number of units, drop a course without a W.

The 9th Friday of each quarter is the deadline to submit drop requests.

The 10th Friday of each quarter is the deadline to submit add requests.

The 11th Friday of each quarter (finals week) is the deadline to submit:

  • Final Paperwork for degree completion
  • Fully completed forms must be received in the Graduate Division by the deadline date; department approval alone does not constitute meeting a deadline.

The Summer degree deadline is the last Friday of summer session II (usually in early September).


Please note: Fully completed forms must be received in the Graduate Division by the stated deadline date. Departments may set earlier submission deadlines for internal processing; please check with your home department for details.
