No later than the first semester of the junior year (60-75 earned hours), a student must submit a plan for degree completion to his or her advisor. Students are eligible to apply for graduation once they have achieved 90 or more credit hours. The web-based CAPP Degree Evaluation printout must be submitted with the Application for Graduation.
All students who expect to graduate must submit an application for graduation. Before doing so, the student must review and discuss their CAPP evaluation with their advisor to determine if they are on track, pay the application fee to the cashier's office, complete the graduation application, attach a copy of the receipt of payment, and submit to the Office of the Registrar. Prospective graduates for Spring Commencement in May must apply for graduation by January 30 of the same year. Prospective graduates for Winter Commencement in December must apply for graduation by August 30 of the same year. The university assumes no responsibility for making special adjustments for students who file late applications for graduation. The university cannot guarantee that names of students who file late applications will appear in the Commencement booklet or the Honors supplement.
Students who do not file an application for graduation automatically void their candidacy for that particular graduation and must apply for the next graduation. Students who fail to meet graduation requirements by the designated dates automatically void their candidacy for that particular graduation and must re-submit their application for graduation. If the student does not complete the necessary degree requirements within the same academic year of his/her expected term of graduation, then the student must re-apply and pay an additional application fee.
