Requirements for Graduation

YOU MUST APPLY FOR GRADUATION. If you do not apply by the stated deadline, you may PETITION to the Admissions and Credits Committee to submit a late application to graduate, through the end of the semester when the application is due.

Students who have already graduated in the previous August or December, and all those who are “cleared for graduation” in the current May semester, are expected to participate in the May Commencement ceremony. (Clearing can only be done after all grades have been submitted and processed.)

Most of the common requirements for graduation are included in the checklist below. Check the catalog you are following for specific requirements.

*Read the catalog you are following for specific and additional requirements in your major/program.

Students must complete within seven years the graduation requirements of the Catalog they choose. They may choose the Catalog in effect at their initial admission to the University or a subsequent Catalog. Students may not split Catalog requirements.
