To qualify for graduation, all graduate students must complete all program requirements with a minimum G.P.A. of 3.00.

Diplomas are mailed to students within two weeks after the actual date of graduation.

In those rare instances when a student has not met all degree requirements, but for whom a change to the academic record is received by the Office of the Registrar within one week following the graduation, the student will be considered for the earlier graduation. The effective date of the change must be on or before the actual date of the graduation. Changes received later than one week beyond graduation will not be considered for prior graduation but will be part of the next graduation cycle.

Only students who have completed all graduation requirements, including, but not limited to, course work, credit requirements, G.P.A. minimums, residency requirements, and the like, will be allowed to participate in Commencement.
