Important Reminders

  • Degrees are conferred upon completion of all requirements and after final official grades have posted.  Diplomas will be mailed 6-8 weeks after grades are final.
  • Students who do not complete their degree requirements by the end of term they applied to graduate, must reapply for graduation and notify the Office of the Registrar in order to receive an enrollment date for the following term.
  • Candidates for graduation are eligible to register for terms subsequent to the graduation date, only if an application for re-admission as a post-baccalaureate or graduate student has been filed with the Office of Admissions.
  • Graduation requirements are determined by the continuous enrollment regulations defined in the University Catalog. After the degree is granted, no changes can be made to the undergraduate record.
