Graduation Preparation

All undergraduate students are expected to submit a Petition to Graduate to the Office of the Registrar approximately one calendar year prior to their expected graduation. Completing your Petition well in advance of the quarter when you plan to graduate is important for several reasons: it provides an opportunity to make sure that you haven’t overlooked or misunderstood any graduation requirements—and that you understand how your courses fit department, college, and university rules. It is also a good opportunity to talk with your academic advisors and think about how you’d like to spend your final year as an undergraduate student. 

Before petitioning to graduate, please review your Degree Progress Report in CAESAR and/or your Degree Audit in MAS to ensure that your courses are counting where you expect them to in your degree requirements.
