Please read the following before filling out form:
All course work to be credited toward any of the master’s degrees must have been enrolled in and
completed within six (6) calendar years prior to the date on which the degree is to be awarded. For example,
a student graduating in the spring semester must have started and completed all course work within the
72-month period beginning with the summer term six years earlier. When recommended by the student’s
advisory committee and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School, as many as six semester hours of
course work at Clemson University completed outside the six-year limit may be validated by written
examination. Such examinations will be under the direction of the department regularly offering the course
or courses for which the student seeks validation. Course work completed outside the six-year time limit at
an institution other than Clemson University may not be transferred to Clemson or validated for graduate
credit. Exceptions to the credit limit and time period may be considered only in unusual circumstances and
with approval from the Graduate School.
