6.16 Course Extensions: Individualized Study

If you are unable to complete your individualized study course during the course contract period, you may apply for and purchase up to three, two-month extensions. Course extensions apply to individualized study courses only. You may not extend a grouped study course.

Each completed extension request form and fee must be received by the Office of the Registrar a minimum of one month before your course contract end date. Requests for second and third extensions must be received by the Office of the Registrar a minimum of one month before the expiry of the previous extension.

The extension begins on the first day of the month following your course contract end date. If you fail to complete your course and you do not apply for an extension by the required deadline, you will receive a course failure (F). If you wish to obtain credit for the course, you may re-register and pay a fee. Both the original registration and the re-registration will appear on your transcript.

Students receiving financial assistance may be restricted by shorter time limits.
