SCMP Designation Program Extension or Withdrawal Application

The SCMP Program is designed to be completed in three years. Students accepted into the program are expected to complete the program in this time frame. SCMA realizes that sometimes life commitments change with work and family and extensions become necessary. One year extensions can be granted if requested in writing to the SCMA BC office at least 3-4 weeks prior to the semester start dates (usually the first/second week of the semester). An extension can be granted up to two times in the program.

All components of the SCMP Designation program must be completed within a 5-year time frame to be eligible for the designation. Should you choose to withdraw from the program, re-entry will only be considered within that 5-year time frame. Any re-entry to the program outside of the 5-year time frame will result in the necessity of previously taken courses being repeated.
