Graduation Application and Diplomas

Degree/Certificate Application 

In order to be awarded a degree/certificate, students must apply for graduation in WebAdvisor, once they have registered for their final classes. Degree candidates who have submitted a degree application are eligible to participate in commencement if they have completed all of their degree requirements, or will complete all requirements by the end of the summer semester. The graduate school’s annual commencement ceremony is held on the first Sunday in June.
