Graduate students may not participate in commencement exercises until all requirements for the degree sought have been fulfilled.

Application for Degree and Graduation

To graduate, a student must submit the Master’s Degree Application online in their Oasis account. This application must be submitted in the term of expected graduation by the deadline noted in the academic calendar. If a student applies for graduation and is not approved, a new Application for Degree must be submitted by the deadline in a new term.  In order for the degree statement to appear on a student’s academic record, the student must file the aforementioned application whether or not participation in the commencement ceremony is desired.

Inquiries concerning approval or denial of graduation should be made to the appropriate college.  It is the student’s responsibility to clear all “I” (Incomplete) and “M” (Missing) grades in all courses and to provide official transcripts of all transferred coursework needed for graduation at least three (3) weeks prior to the end of the term in which the student expects to graduate.

Certification Letters

Students in need of verification of the degree prior to receiving their diploma may request a Letter of Certification. This letter specifies that the student has finished all of the requirements for the degree and the date the degree will be conferred on. The letter must include the student’s identification number, name of degree program and official name of the degree. The College Dean (or designee) must sign the Letter of Certification.
