Meeting the published term deadline assures that records and required documents will be reviewed and processed in time to confer a degree in that term. Short deadline extensions may be requested if unavoidable circumstances make it impossible to meet that deadline. Extension requests must be submitted using this form. If approved, every effort will be made to confer the degree upon qualified students. However, there is no absolute guarantee the necessary reviews and approvals can be completed in time to award the degree if a deadline extension is granted. If processing cannot be completed, a student may apply to graduate in a subsequent term.

FERPA Restrictions

Beginning Summer 2020, the name that you list in your Commencement RSVP settings will be printed for both the Commencement booklet and diploma. You no longer have to submit a Name Change request.

Please ensure that you have updated your FERPA settings to have your name printed in the Commencement booklet. Instructions can be found here.
