Students wishing to graduate must file a diploma application with the Registrar’s Office at the beginning of the term in which the student has registered to complete their remaining degree requirements (course work, comprehensive exam, thesis, etc.) Applications are available from the Registrar or the Office of Graduate Studies and require a $5 fee.
The deadline for filing applications is March 1 for Spring, June 15th for Summer, and October 1st for Fall. Notice of clearance for graduation or, if needed, notice of remaining degree requirements, will be sent to the graduate student and the advisor. May or December graduates must have completed all master’s degree requirements on or before the end of the last day of the semester; for those who apply for graduation in August, requirements must be completed by the last day of Summer Session II.
Note: Students cannot graduate with "incomplete" grades on their records.
