Students must apply to graduate in the semester in which they will complete all of the degree requirements for their major(s) and/or minor(s). Without applying for graduation, students will not receive a degree!
This form may be submitted for consideration by a student who will not complete their graduation requirements in a given semester, but wishes to participate in the commencement ceremony during that semester. Students who need to complete an internship or six or less credits may be eligible to participate in the ceremony. The student’s name will not appear in the commencement program. Students are reminded to apply for graduation in the semester they intend to complete their degree requirements.

Students are limited to a maximum of six total repeats. Repeats of a single course will be limited to a maximum of three repeats. Once a student reaches the maximum allowed repeats, they must gain approval to repeat another course. When a student repeats a course, the credits are to be counted only once in determining the semester grade point average (GPA) and the total credits needed for graduation. The most recent grade in the course (regardless of whether it is higher or lower) will be used to calculate GPA.
