            Please note: Graduation (degree conferral) is the completion of all degree requirements as recorded on the official transcript. Commencement is the ceremony that celebrates the completion of a degree. Participation in the commencement ceremony does not imply that you have officially graduated.

            Degree audits

            Degree audits are conducted during the semester for which you have applied to graduate. All grade changes, petitions of exception and transfer credits must be submitted and approved prior to this initial audit. Questions regarding deficiencies should be directed to the program coordinator.

            Your degree audit will then be submitted to your department for them to review program requirements. Final audits are conducted approximately two weeks after term grades have been posted, and degrees are posted four to six weeks after the end of the semester.

            Diplomas are ordered for the entire graduating class as a whole, approximately eight weeks after the end of the semester, and will be mailed directly to the address specified on the graduation application.

            If you are completing a thesis or dissertation (not a terminal project), please follow the deadlines for format review, defense and submission for binding. It is important to carefully review and follow the graduation checklist to minimize deficiencies that will delay graduation.
