After determining your eligibility to graduate, you must complete two mandatory items to graduate.
- Notification of intent to graduate
1. In order to graduate, you must notify the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences of your intent. This is done at the same time that you register for your final semester of classes through the student registration system. If, for some reason, you do not do so by the 10th day of class, contact your admissions/records officer. Otherwise, your name will not be added to the pending degree list, and the date of your degree award and diploma will be delayed. Also, you should be aware that if you are removed from the list, for any reason, such as dropping a required course, you cannot register for additional course work without the approval of the associate dean in LAS Student Academic Affairs.
- Please note, indicating your intent to graduate does not automatically register you for the commencement and convocation ceremonies. To participate, you must register.
Register for Graduation Ceremonies – Once the mandatory steps are completed, all that remains for you to do is register for a commencement or convocation ceremony. Celebrate your achievement by attending a ceremony for either winter or spring graduation. You must register for commencement and convocation ceremonies in order to participate.
