Degree Completion Timeframes

Full-time associate degree program students are required to complete the degree within a five-year period; full-time bachelor degree students are required to complete the degree within a ten-year period. Each period is determined from the date of matriculation. If any enrollment lapses beyond one year, students will need to be formally readmitted to Becker (see Withdrawing and Returning to Becker policy), and will need to meet the degree requirements of the catalog currently in force at the time of readmission.

A student who has completed a minimum of 90% of the credits required for a degree may contact the Registrar’s Office to be allowed to complete the requirements of the earlier catalog even though the one year time limit has passed. Input of a faculty member from the discipline awarding the degree will be requested to answer such questions as currency of the information, licensure, and program accreditation issues, etc.
