Graduate Coursework Expiration Dates
To stipulate the maximum number of years for courses to count towards a graduate degree
All Lawrence/Edwards Campus Graduate students
Courses completed at the University of Kansas, or transfer credits from another university, cannot be used to fulfill graduate degree requirements if these courses were completed more than ten (10) years prior to the final defense for doctoral candidates or graduation for master’s students.
Faculty members retain the responsibility for determining the validity of courses that count toward the degree. Any decision to make an exception to the policy outlined above must be approved by the graduate affairs office of the school/college in which the student’s program resides.
