If you took any courses required for your degree before you were admitted to a doctoral program, your committee will have to approve using the courses. You also may need to provide evidence of current knowledge. If needed, you might be granted an extension of one year if your department chairperson and the dean of the Graduate School approve. Extensions are based on academic considerations and are limited. You may be required to repeat preliminary examinations, to take additional course work, or both.
