Graduation Audit 

A graduation audit is required when you are close to completing your degree and summarizes your remaining requirements into a one-page document. It is not the same as your degree audit report (DARS) which lists all requirements including those you have already fulfilled.

When to Request Your Graduation Audit:  You can request an audit any time you have 33 or fewer credits (including in progress courses) remaining to graduate. It is recommended you request one before registration begins for your final semester.

How to Request Your Graduation Audit:  An academic advisor can complete your audit during a scheduled appointment and clarify any questions you have about remaining requirements.  

If needed, you can complete the Graduation Audit Request form instead and submit it to Student Academic Services. An advisor will then e-mail you the audit.  If you have questions about the audit, please make an appointment with an advisor. Audits are not typically done during advising without an appointment (walk-ins).


Application for Degree

An application for degree is required for an advisor to approve you for graduation.

When to Submit Your Application for Degree:  The application should be submitted at the end of the semester before you plan to graduate but no later than the third week of your final semester. The exact deadline is indicated on the University Calendar.  

How to Submit Your Application for Degree:  You must meet with an advisor to submit your application for degree before the deadline.  To complete the Application for Degree, click the link below, and click "Application for Degree."  Type in the fields, print the form, sign it in pen, and bring it with you to your advising meeting. Your advisor will then sign as the designee and forward your application to the registrar's office for processing.  

Application for Degree

Students pursuing certificates can also find the certificate application at the same link.  This should be submitted at the same time as your application for degree.
