Chapter III: Degree Requirements and Graduation Procedures

Graduation Procedures

Students who have completed 90 Credits Toward Program (CTP) hours should submit the Diploma Application to the Academic Advising Center. In addition, A.B. and B.S. degree candidates should submit completed Concentration Release Form(s ) to the Academic Advising Center. Ideally, students should submit these forms in the term preceding the one in which they expect to graduate so that they will have an audit of their degree requirements prior to registering for their final term.

The Diploma Application and Concentration Release Form(s) should be submitted no later than four weeks after classes begin in the term the student plans to graduate (one week after classes begin in the Summer Half-Term) in order for the student's name to appear in the Commencement Program. Students whose forms are received after the deadline may have their degree audits delayed and may have to defer graduation. Students who do not complete degree requirements in the term that a Diploma Application has been filed must file a new Diploma Application to graduate in a subsequent term. A student who has completed all degree requirements but has not yet graduated may obtain a Verification of Graduation Letter from the Academic Auditors as evidence that a degree will be rewarded. Diplomas are received 8-10 weeks after Commencement following approval of the final degree list.

Students with two concentrations must submit Concentration Release Forms for both concentrations to have each concentration appear on their transcripts upon graduation. If a double concentrator finishes the requirements for only one concentration prior to graduation, only the completed concentration will appear on the student's transcripts upon graduation. A student, however, may contact the Academic Auditors and defer graduation until completing the work in the second concentration, or a student may complete the work in a second concentration after graduation, file a Concentration Release Fo rm for this concentration and have a second concentration added to the transcript.
