Preparing for Graduation
Students approaching completion of their academic program should:
- Review with their academic advisor(s) all coursework, credits earned, and possible waivers or changes to their major.
- Have their advisor process the necessary form(s) to inform the Registrar’s office of any changes to the major, minor, or concentration, as well as any course substitutions, or waivers needed to satisfy the graduation requirements.
- Complete an Application for Graduation for the semester in which ALL your coursework will be completed. All coursework (including co-ops, internships, and independent study) must be completed and graded before a degree will be awarded.
- The University has three graduation dates related to semesters Fall, Spring, or Summer. The semester that you apply for graduation does not affect your eligibility to participate in the May commencement ceremony (see below).
- An Application for Graduation may be submitted online through WebAdvisor or in-person at the Registrar’s Office.
For Undergraduate and Graduate students, the Commencement is held once per year, at the end of the spring semester. Participation at the commencement ceremony is permitted for those within 18 credits toward graduation. Candidates for graduation at the end of a Summer or Fall semester are eligible for participation in the May commencement.
The Division of Health Sciences conducts two commencement ceremonies each year following the Spring and Fall semesters.
Although attendance is optional, we strongly encourage all graduates and their families to attend this important ceremony and celebrate the achievements of the new graduates.
