Academic Policy Details


Students are required to apply for graduation during the fall or spring registration period before their last semester of coursework. Students who fail to register for graduation cannot expect a program audit, inclusion in the commencement program, or participation in the graduation ceremony. Students who apply for graduation and who complete all degree requirements will be contacted in matters relating to diplomas, academic regalia, and commencement. The graduation fee is billed at the time of their final registration.

Diplomas will be ordered with the information confirmed by the student. Should the student wish to have a name change after diplomas have been ordered, it will be at the expense of the student.


These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only.  Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Bulletin.
