Graduation Information

Apply to Graduate

Applying to graduate means informing LAS that you expect to finish degree requirements and want to "graduate". THIS IS SEPARATE FROM THE CEREMONIES RECOGNIZING GRADUATION.

In order to graduate, you must notify the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences of your intent. This is done at the same time that you register for your final semester of classes through the student registration system. If, for some reason, you do not do so by the 10th day of class, contact your admissions/records officer. 

If you do not notify LAS of your intent to graduate, your name will not be added to the pending degree list, and the date of your degree award and diploma will be delayed. Also, you should be aware that if you are removed from the list, for any reason, such as dropping a required course, you cannot register for additional course work without the approval of the associate dean in LAS Student Academic Affairs.

Students may participate in Commencement and Convocation ceremonies prior to the completion of all degree requirements.
