Graduation

Our office is responsible for the academic side of graduation. Along with our colleagues in the professional schools, we ensure that all degree requirements have been met, grades are posted and diplomas are prepared for the spring commencement exercises as well as the winter and summer graduates. We are also primarily responsible for maintaining the degree requirements for all undergraduates. Please contact the appropriate graduate school for graduate degree requirements.
