Graduation Requirements

Graduation REGISTRATION and Checkout Requirements

To graduate, students must be registered during the term in which they complete their program.

An exception to this registration policy allows students to complete an early checkout in the graduation semester if all requirements have been successfully met by a particular deadline.

Students not meeting the early checkout deadline are required to register for an additional semester before the Office of Graduate Studies will process their checkout request. For additional information, refer to

All graduating students must officially check out of their degree program prior to graduation. Notification of the checkout steps will be sent by the Graduate Office after a student has applied to graduate. Checkout requirements must be completed by the established deadlines for each graduation term, whether early or standard checkout timelines are being followed.
