    We are in discussion with the Graduate Council about the time-to-degree policies at our campus and the placement of graduate students on probation who exceed the 7 year mark. It would be most helpful to hear how other campuses encourage timely completion of advanced degrees while not causing any detrimental effects.

    We do not use probation for time to degree. We have a request for a time extension process and if approved, they continue in good standing. If not approved, they have to re-take courses.

    We also do not use probation for time to degree but use an approval process to allow continuation. Our only method of encouraging timely completion is the annual review process.

    We have, pending approval hopefully in the coming weeks, a Continuation Fee for Ph.D. students above the 5th-year (from the 6th year on). The proposed fee would be around 450 US$ per semester (but ~250 US$ per Summer term). If approved by our Managing Council, this fee will also be subject to the student’s good standing after their annual review.
