No-Cost Extensions

9.5 No-Cost Extensions and Carry Forward are requests to extend the termination date of a project without additional funds.

 Some federal sponsors allow the institutions to approve an extension internally with notification of the sponsor; other sponsors require that a formal request for additional time be submitted for their approval. The timing for such requests varies by sponsor, but should generally be processed at least 30–45 days prior to the scheduled termination date of the project.
