Degree Clearance Procedure

At the beginning of the semester in which you intend to complete your degree, you must file a Declaration of Intent to Graduate form with the Registrar's office no later than the final clearance date as set in the Graduate Academic Calendar.

You must be registered for your final course(s) during the semester you have filed for degree clearance, or if your coursework as been completed, you must be registered for Continued Matriculation (CM.601).

The Registrar's office will verify course credit, and grade and GPA requirements.  Names of students who have satisfied all degree requirements are then forwarded to the appropriate college faculty for endorsement, and finally recommended to the Office of the Provost for graduation.

Note: Students who complete degree requirements, but fail to file a declaration of intent to graduate form will not be recommended to the Office of the Provost for graduation, and conferral of degree will be delayed until the following semester when an approved declaration as been filed.
