Students who have completed a master's degree or advanced certificate or attended only as a graduate nonmatriculated/nondegree student at Brooklyn College must file with the Office of Graduate Admissions in order to continue to take graduate courses. The only exception to this rule is for graduates of the School of Education graduate division who wish to take graduate education courses in the bilingual, middle childhood or gifted extension programs and have not skipped a term. These students may follow the readmission procedures and need not file with the Admissions Office.
A master's degree or advanced certificate must be completed within seven years, beginning with the student's initial registration in any course pertaining to the program. The seven-year rule applies to any admission status: matriculated, matriculated with conditions, nonmatriculated or nondegree.
Students who have been enrolled for more than seven years must submit an extension-of-time petition, and courses that were taken more than seven years ago must be evaluated and approved by the department and by CGAS.
