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 Fall 2017 degree, all of the following requirements must be completed by the Fall 2017 Graduate Application for Graduation Deadline, Friday, December 15. Graduate students who complete all requirements by Tuesday, September 5 are not required to enroll for the Fall 2017 semester.
