Chapter III: Degree Requirements and Graduation
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.
