11.19 Application for Graduation

Approved by Academic Council on April 26, 2001

An application for graduation filed with the office of the University Registrar is an indication of an intent to graduate at a specific time. It should be filed with the office of the University Registrar in the spring semester by any student expecting to fulfill degree requirements during the next academic year. This allows time for a review of studies completed and to enable the students to enroll for any requirements not yet completed. Certification for actual graduation will be by the adviser and the faculty of the college or school.

Students may graduate at the end of the fall semester, end of the spring semester, or end of the summer sessions, but graduation ceremonies are held only once a year in May. Students who will complete their bachelor degree requirements during the following summer may request by petition to participate in the May commencement ceremonies.
