Important Deadlines for the College of Graduate Studies

 

Deadline to Apply for Graduation*

  • Fall 2019 - September 13, 2019
  • Spring 2020- January 31, 2020
  • Summer 2020** - May 22, 2020

 *It is important to meet the application deadlines to avoid certain consequences or delays. Applying for graduation by the posted deadline ensures:

  • your college has ample time to review your record before you graduate
  • you receive a degree audit from the College of Graduate Studies [the online degree audit only works for undergraduates]
  • your degree is posted to your transcript and diploma is ordered without unnecessary delays
  • you receive commencement related mailings
  • your name appears in the commencement program

** Summer candidates are invited to participate in either the spring or fall ceremony; however, if they wish to walk in the spring ceremony, the candidates should apply for summer graduation but submit the application by the fifth week of the spring term to be included in the spring commencement program. Additional information about university commencement ceremonies can be found on the registrar's commencement webpage.

Applications for graduation may be submitted after the deadline date provided the student obtains an adviser's signature. Please note it is the responsibility of the student to obtain graduation related information that may have been distributed prior to the submission of the late application.
