From Stanford Electrical Engineering Department Graduate Handbook
Revision as of 20:22, 21 August 2008 by Wikiuser
If you are unable to complete the requirements of your Ph.D. program of study within five years after admission to candidacy, you must complete an Application for Extension of Candidacy.
The Extension of Candidacy form can be found on the Web registrar.stanford.edu/shared/publications.htm.
Review your situation with your principal adviser as soon as you realize that you will be unable to complete your Ph.D. program within the specified time limits. Submit this form before your candidacy expires. If you allow your candidacy to expire, your registration privileges will cease and you must apply for reinstatement to continue with your program. This could result in having to reapply for admission and repeat the qualifying exams.
This form may be used to extend the time limits for completion of your Ph.D. program for up to one year. Extensions require a review of your academic progress and approval from the department. After obtaining your principal adviser's signature, submit this form to Diane Shankle, Packard Room 177.
