For students completing prior to the end of the Fall or Spring semester an alternate completion date can be requested upon submission of all final paperwork and completion of your academic engagement.
An Alternate Completion Date Request form must be submitted to the Graduate School for approval for International students or those with Graduate Assistantships.
Once a graduation term has been changed, there is no need to re-apply for graduation.
There is also no need to resubmit the final plan of study unless changes are made that require approval from the department.
For more information about changing your name in the system, see Modify Your Names on the Student Administration System Help website.
The mailing/billing address is where diplomas will be mailed unless a separate Diploma Address has been designated.Applying by the fourth week ensures you will be included in Commencement communications.For more information about using the system to apply for graduation, see Apply for Graduation on the Student Administration System Help website.The Primary Name is what prints on the diploma unless a Degree Name has been designated.Degree Name must share the same last name as the Primary.Apply to graduate by the fourth week of your final semester for each degree you are completing (or the spring semester for summer graduates).You are able to apply once registration for your last semester opens up.Not all of the following forms are required by all programs.Students who have applied for graduation who later determine that they will not complete their requirements by the above deadlines (for example, students who anticipate failing a required course) may change their graduation term by contacting the Degree Audit section of the Office of the Registrar.Graduates completing during the summer will have a completion date determined by the submission of their final approved paperwork and/or completion of their enrollment.As students are no longer eligible to work as graduate assistants after their completion date, students should coordinate the end date of any summer employment with the submission of their final paperwork.
