Section IV: Graduation Policies & Procedures


The Graduate School Bulletin for each academic year contains the deadlines which must be met to insure graduation in the Fall, Spring or Summer session. The student must check with the Graduate School early in the semester as dates listed may be subject to change. If a student has completed all classes and has successfully defended the thesis, dissertation or project but missed the deadline to graduate in one semester, then that student must apply for graduation in the following semester. Students are not allowed to participate in commencement unless the deadline for defense has been met.
