Declare Intent to Graduate

Applying for Graduation

Undergraduate students need to submit a Declaration of Intent to Graduate (DIG) form to their college dean's office. Please note, that seniors who complete graduation requirements but do not submit this form in a timely manner are advised that it will impact when they will be eligible to receive their diploma and their names may not be printed in the Commencement booklet. 

Online and Continuing Education students should schedule a graduation interview to review their program worksheet with a faculty coordinator. To schedule an interview, a OCE student should call Online and Continuing Education at 978-934-2474. 

International students on either F-1 or J-1 student status who are completing their academic program should schedule an appointment with the International Students & Scholars Office,  978-934-2383 or

Once we have received your DIG form, your name will appear on the Registrar's Office website.

Master's and doctoral students must file a Declaration of Intent to Graduate Form (pdf) with the Registrar's Office. Deadlines are posted on the form. The Registrar's Office will verify course credit, grade and GPA requirements, and submission of thesis/dissertation (if applicable) prior to the awarding the degree.
