This checklist is intended to guide students in the final stages of degree completion. To be considered a degree candidate in any given semester, all degree requirements must be fulfilled and required documentation submitted no later than the University-wide Application for Graduation deadline.
The University has also established an early degree completion deadline that some students may wish to take advantage of. If a student meets all departmental and University requirements by this deadline, and was enrolled during the previous semester, he or she is not required to enroll for the current semester. This deadline falls approximately two weeks after the start of the Fall and Spring semesters, one week after the start of the Summer session.
To qualify for a Spring 2020 degree, all requirements must be completed by the Spring 2020 Graduate Application for Graduation Deadline, Friday, May 15th. To qualify for a Summer 2020 degree, all requirements must be completed by the Summer 2020 Graduate Application for Graduation Deadline, Friday, July 24th. Graduate students who complete all requirements on the list below by Tuesday, June 9th are not required to enroll for the Summer 2020 semester.
