86-00 Candidates' Responsibilities and Options Print This Policy


A candidate for a degree cannot assume that graduation is automatic after completing a given number of credits or by attending the University for a given period of time. A candidate declares an intention to graduate to the Office of the University Registrar during advance registration prior to the beginning of the semester or during schedule adjustment in the semester when degree requirements are expected to be completed. If the candidate fails to graduate at the end of that semester, it is necessary to again inform the Office of the University Registrar in a subsequent semester by initiating the necessary actions preparatory to the conferral of a degree.
