All undergraduate and graduate level students must apply for graduation.
Graduation is not automatic.
- Students can apply for graduation via the web.
- There are three degree conferral dates; September 1, February 1, and late May or early June.
- If you filed for graduation for a prior semester but did not graduate, you must file again. All temporary grades (INC, ABS, PEN) must be resolved prior to graduation, including those assigned in the final semester of attendance. Grades will not be changed after you have been cleared for graduation.
- You must clear all STOPS by the date of graduation. Failure to clear STOPS will delay the release of your diploma and the processing of your transcript request.
- If you are an upper division student, you should have a preliminary graduation check in the Dean's Office at least two semesters before you expect to graduate.
- You must get your final graduation check and certification to graduate from your Dean’s office at the beginning of your final semester.
Note: You must also complete your final graduation check through the appropriate Dean’s office before the end of the semester.
