  • Must meet MINIMUM registration requirements
  • Must NOT have any I’s or U’s on academic transcript
  • Must have a minimum cumulative and core GPA of 3.0

If the degree is not awarded, the student must:

  1. File a Graduation Date Change Form with the Registrar’s Office at 222 Criser Hall before the end of the non-graduating term. (Please see the Registrar’s Office to obtain).
  2. Re-apply for the degree award via ISIS in a subsequent term by the published deadline for that term, AND
  3. Meet all other requirements for the term the degree will be awarded.

*These requirements also apply when a thesis student has been approved to Clear Prior by the Graduate School Editorial Office.
