Deadlines Extended

Graduate Student Deadlines

Deadlines for completion of degree and candidacy requirements, dissertation defenses and post-dissertation defense submissions have all been extended for engineering graduate students enrolled in Rackham (MS, MSE, PhD) and non-Rackham (MEng, DEng) graduate degree programs.

Drop/Add/Edit/Swap

The following CoE Late Drop/Add/Edit/Swap deadlines for Winter 2020 will be extended to the last day of classes (4/21/2020):

  • Full-term classes to drop with a “W”, add, swap, edit grading basis or credits (if the course allows) without an SSC Petition
