Application for Graduation

Application for a Degree or Certificate

When students are prepared to complete degree or certificate requirements, they must file the online Intent to Graduate form by the published deadline as noted below:

  • May 15 for December graduation
  • November 30 for May graduation

MSW and DSW students file a Petition for Graduation form with the MSW office or DSW office, respectively, during the term prior to that in which all graduate requirements will be completed. Students who are pursuing a degree and a certificate simultaneously file the form when they have completed the requirements for both.

Upon receipt of the form, the registrar will verify the student's eligibility for graduation and include the student as a candidate for graduation in the commencement brochure.

Final Transcript and Diploma

Students receive a final transcript and diploma upon completion of all course work, provided they have no holds on their record.
