FAQS for the Graduation Application Process

What semester do I apply to graduate in?

The semester that you will have completed all requirements. Summer graduates will have the opportunity to request to walk in Spring on the Summer application.

How do I upload my Degree Works Plan of Study?

Login to Degree Works with your D-number, select Save as PDF, then select the Print option, then Print to PDF. (Do not download from Degree Works. The file doesn’t save as a pdf in this format.)

How do I pay the $80 fee?

The fee will be charged to your student account. This can be paid in person with cash or check at the Cashier’s Office or online.

Why is there more than one step in the graduation application process?

Graduate Programs have many different and unique requirements. This multi-step process ensures that all of your program requirements have been met prior to issuing your diploma.

What if my thesis/final project doesn't pass in the semester that I planned to graduate?

If you complete your thesis or final project within 30 days of the graduation date, your original graduation application will be sufficient.  If due to extenuating circumstances this completion may require an additional semester or more, you will need to either enroll in a Thesis/Final Project class the next semester/s, or complete a leave of absence form.  If the Office of Graduate Studies is notified of the delay prior to the original application graduation date, no additional application will be required.  If the Office of Graduate Studies is notified after the original application graduation date, the Graduation-Reapplication form and an additional $10 fee will be required.
