Posthumous Degrees are granted by permission of the Provost. The program director must make the request to the Provost and once approved, the Provost will notify the program director and the Registrar. The Register will work with the Dean of Student Affairs two months prior to graduation to coordinate with the student’s family. Typically a student should have a semester or less remaining to be granted a degree posthumously.
