Graduation Preparation

All undergraduate students are expected to submit a Graduation Petition to the Office of the Registrar approximately one calendar year prior to their expected graduation. Completing your Graduation 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 and degree auditors in the Office of the Registrar agree on how your courses fit department, school, and university rules. It is also a good opportunity to talk with academic advisers about how you’d like to spend your final year as an undergraduate student.
