Graduation Procedures

Students must apply for a diploma not later than the second week of the term in which they plan to graduate. Application is made at the Office of the University Registrar where the student receives a “Final Term Clearance Form.” This must then be stamped by the University Cashier’s Office, taken to the doctoral director for sign-off, and then to the College of Social Science Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

The application procedure must be repeated if the student does not graduate during the term for which the application was submitted.
