Application for Graduation 2014-2015

Requirements

Please refer to your program handbook for degree requirements, academic standing policies and residency policies that apply to graduation. All program handbooks are available online.

Process

  • Make an appointment with your academic advisor to discuss your plans prior to the start of your last term in LPS.
  • Submit a graduation application (see below).
  • Your record will be audited by your advisor(s) to verify that you have completed all degree requirements.
  • LPS will inform you by e-mail if you are on track to graduate or if there are any obstacles to your graduation in the term for which you have applied.
  • Your graduation will be posted on your academic record once you have completed all degree requirements, including completion of work in your final term.
  • Your diploma will be mailed to you approximately two (2) months after the end of the term in which you graduate. Your diploma will be issued only if you have satisfied all the relevant requirements and have paid all outstanding University bills and fees. Diplomas are mailed by the University via First Class mail and will be sent to the permanent address listed in Penn InTouch, unless a different address is specified in the "Temporary Address Field" effective two months after your graduation date. International diplomas can take up to eight weeks for delivery. International students who are planning to stay in the US should designate a temporary US address in Penn InTouch or contact the Diploma Coordinator to arrange to pick up the diploma from the Office of the University Secretary.
  • If you are not approved to graduate in the term for which you originally apply, you will need to apply again for graduation in a different (future) term. We cannot defer or roll forward graduation applications to future terms. There is no fee associated with graduation applications.

Please note: All students are advised to monitor their progress toward fulfilling degree requirements on a regular basis via Penn InTouch.
