Printable Version Printable Version

All graduate students who expect to receive degrees at either the Spring (June) or Fall (October) Convocations must submit a Graduate Studies Intention to Graduate/Program Completion Form to their department at the time of degree completion for verification of degree requirements and approval to graduate.

The deadlines for submission of the forms are April 30th for Spring Convocation and August 31st for Fall Convocation. See Calendar of Events and Academic Deadlines section of this calendar.

It should be noted that the name printed on the degree diploma will be the student's name as recorded on the student's academic record. Those who specify a name which differs from that on current academic records, must supply official name change documentation to the Graduate Studies Office. Graduands who are unable to attend convocation will have their diplomas mailed to them by the Graduate Studies Office.
