  • 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.
  • 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.
