Graduation Requirements

Listed below are answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding graduation requirements.

  • It is your responsibility to make sure that you have completed the requirements for graduation. The Office of Registration and Records can verify that you have applied to graduate or you can check on-line. However, if you have questions related to whether you have completed requirements to graduate, please contact your academic advisor.

  • If you complete requirements for graduation during the summer term, you will automatically be included in the Spring commencement ceremony.

  • If you have applied to graduate and you do not meet requirements to graduate that term, you should receive an e-mail from the Office of Registration and Records to that effect within 30-60 days after the close of the term. Once you receive this information, you will need to update your graduation date on-line. You will not automatically be included on the next graduation list. You must update your graduation term on-line in order to be included on that term's list of candidates for graduation.

  • For guidelines, refer to graduation honors.
