Students planning to complete an Associate's, Bachelor’s, or Master's degree must file an Application for Degree Form in the University Registrar's Office at the beginning of their final semester in order to initiate a graduation check. (Students can monitor their progress toward a degree via their online degree audit; instructions for processing an online degree audit can be found at this link.) Graduation checks are completed midway through the Spring and Fall semesters. Applicants will receive an email indicating either that everything is in order, or that certain requirements have not yet been met.
The Application for Degree should be filed in early September for students intending to participate in the Fall commencement ceremony, and in early February for students intending to participate in the Spring commencement ceremony, which includes both Spring and Summer degree candidates (see the academic calendar for exact dates). A student is not a candidate for degree until the University Registrar’s Office has the Application for Degree on file.
Students may fill out an Application for Degree in person in the University Registrar’s Office (Morgan Hall, Room 115) during regular business hours, or they can print and complete the form (below) and either fax it or mail it to the University Registrar’s Office (see below for contact information). Students may also scan the form in to a computer and email it to the University Registrar’s Office. University policy requires that Applications for Degree be submitted in writing, with the student’s signature and the date.
