PLEASE NOTE--The filing period for September 2015 potential graduates will NOT be extended past the October 9th deadline. Please apply in a timely fashion since the filing period will not be extended beyond the deadline.
REMEMBER--An application generates the evaluation for graduation. If an application is NOT filed, an evaluation is not done. Previous applications are not automatically reactivated, and students are required to reapply.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION--All requirements toward a January 2015 degree MUST be completed by the end of the Fall 2014 session. Courses taken in the fall are applied toward January degrees - courses taken in the fall are never counted toward June or August degrees. Remember, the January 2015 filing period opens on September 17 and closes on October 9. There will be no exceptions.
COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY--Participation in the ceremony does not signify graduation. An official, final evaluation of your degree status will be completed after all course grades have been recorded.
