Graduation Requirements

Graduation Application

Students need to formally apply for graduation one semester prior to their intended graduation date.

If you are unsure of whether or not you are eligible to graduate we recommend you schedule an appointment with your academic adviser to review your program requirements, resolve any problems or discrepancies, and determine your appropriate graduation date. 

Summer courses or internship? Planning to walk in May?
If you plan to enroll in courses or an internship over the summer, then you are a summer graduation applicant that can walk in the May ceremony, not a spring graduation applicant.
