The “Pre-Evaluation Degree/Certificate Application Filing Period” allows our staff to evaluate your degree requirements and notify you if you are on track or need to modify your classes for your final term(s). Degree applications received after the Pre-Evaluation Degree/Certificate Application Filing Period will not be pre-evaluated.
Degree/Certificate applications must be received by the Final Degree Application Deadline. Any applications received after this date will be evaluated with the next term.

The Office of Student Life organizes the Commencement Ceremony. More information about the ceremony will be available on their website in spring semester. The Office of Student Life will send you an email about the Commencement Ceremony in later Spring term.

Evaluating and Posting Degrees & Certificates
Once your degree has been evaluated, we will email you a notification of your status. If your degree/certificate has been approved, we will let you know when you can expect to receive your Diploma and/or Certificate in the mail.
Due to the volume of degree applications, it can take between 1 – 3 months to evaluate all degree applications for a term.
