Spring graduation is quickly approaching, which means that every student eligible to graduate this spring must fill out a graduation packet. The completed packet is due on Feb. 23. Here are a few things students should know before filling out the packet:
Students must apply for graduation whether or not they plan to participate in commencement ceremonies.
Students must apply for graduation to have their respective degrees/certificates recognized on their transcript.
The graduation application and signed degree audit must be received together-in the same email.
The degree audit will need an original signature, not a stamped signature from the adviser.
If students have not completed the degree/certificate requirements, they should not submit the graduation application.
If students are applying for multiple degrees and/or certificates, they will need to submit a system-generated academic evaluation for every program of study for which they expect to receive a diploma.
If students are seeking a second degree, the degree must be significantly different from any previous degree:
All subsequent degrees must differ from the first degree by 20% of the required semester hour.
Questions regarding the 20% difference should be directed to the student’s adviser
Incomplete graduation packets, including applications received that are missing degree evaluations, signatures, etc., will not be processed
