Graduation

Graduate students in the College have three opportunities each year—corresponding to Application for Graduation deadlines in the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters—to apply for and receive their degree.  Please see the CLAS Graduation Calendar for details and deadlines.  The COGA is responsible for verifying degree requirements for all College graduate programs and is available to provide direct assistance to graduating students. 

We strongly encourage a visit to our office immediately following the defense or final exam and in advance of the applicable Application for Graduation deadline.   During this visit a COGA staff member will review all degree requirements with you, verify that the Application for Graduation and Thesis/Dissertation submissions have been completed, and provide guidance on any pending items.  Please review the information in this section, especially the Master's or Doctoral Student Checklists, for further details about the requirements and process.
