Actions Required for Graduation
A Note About Future Registration
After you apply for graduation, a stop will be placed on any future registrations unless you have been readmitted to the university or your name has been removed from the graduation list.
When you receive a degree from the University, you are "discharged" as a student. If you wish to continue as a doctoral student, special (non-degree seeking) student, or to work on a second bachelor's degree, you must apply for readmission to the University through the appropriate section of the Admission's Office.
Master's degree seeking students must be readmitted through the Graduate Admissions Office.
Request a University Academic Progress Check
The following students are exempt from the requirement: students who have already requested the academic progress check and those students with prior bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degrees.
IMPORTANT: Requesting an academic progress check is NOT the same as applying for graduation!
You will receive a hold to request a University Academic Progress Check when reaching 90 hours. After you submit your request, the University Academic Progress Check hold is removed from your account. You will receive an email notification after the Graduation Services staff completes the review. A new link appears on the request page, allowing you to download your academic progress check. Alternately, you may pick up a copy from the Graduation desk located in University Center A, Room 3900. Business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary. You will not need to request a progress check more than once.

Complete the Graduating Senior Survey Requirement
Students must complete the Graduating Senior Survey to be cleared for graduation. This brief, online survey asks about your post-graduation plans. University funding depends on our ability to report this information, so completion of the survey is a graduation requirement. The link to the survey will be sent to you two weeks prior to the last day of classes.
