HOW TO PREPARE FOR GRADUATION

Apply for graduation. You must apply for graduation for the term in which you plan on completing your degree requirements. Once you apply, your application cannot be withdrawn. However, you can request your application be moved to a term in which you will complete your academic program requirements. If you are unable to complete the requirements for the term you initially applied, you have 45 calendar days after the last day of the term to be considered for that term. Otherwise, you will need to re-apply by sending an email to email@example.com.
