General Requirements for Doctoral Degrees  

Interruption of Study 

Doctoral students who, prior to completion of the qualifying examinations, have interrupted their degree pursuits for a period of five years or more must meet current requirements for the degree, and make any other curricular changes required by the major field advisor and the director of graduate studies.

These time limits are suspended for students in active military service for the duration of that active service.
