Timing & Dependencies

The one-time 30-day Application Deadline Extension may be requested before the Application Deadline using the RDS Secure Website. The RDS Secure Website action to Request an Application Deadline Extension is only available before the Application Deadline has passed. Once the Application Deadline Extension has been granted, it cannot be undone. If the Extension was requested and granted by mistake, there is no adverse effect to the application.
