Read this graduation checklist to stay on track for graduation.
- Completion of Requirements
An application for graduation must be on file in the College of Graduate and Professional Studies in order to be
eligible for a graduation in a specific term. All degree requirements are to be completed prior to the close of the semester/session the
student's degree is to be awarded. If the degree is not awarded, the student must reapply to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies
to be placed in a future graduation term.
- Completion of Course Work
All "incomplete" credits that are necessary for completion of degree requirements must be completed with satisfactory grades and on file
in the Office of Registration and Records on or before the close of the semester/session.
- Transfer Credit
Transferring credits requires that an official transcript and a transfer form
be submitted to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies (CGPS). These forms should be submitted as soon as possible. Failure to do
so can result in insufficient time for processing and/or issues being found so late that a student has insufficient time to take corrective
action prior to their proposed graduation date.
- Fees and Delinquencies
All obligations to the University, such as library delinquencies, residence hall fees, and breakage fees, must be met by the close of the
semester/session the student's degree is to be awarded. Diplomas and transcripts will not be released until all obligations to the University
have been met.
Note: In some cases, academic departments may have earlier deadlines than those listed above. Students should verify requirements
and deadlines with their academic advisors. Materials received after deadlines are subject to being processed the following semester.
