What is "Degree Conferral?"

Degree conferral (often simply called "graduation") is a student-initiated process consisting of submitting an Application for Degree Conferral, completing all academic requirements for your degree - which are verified and approved by your advisor and Dean's Office - and settling all obligations to the college. The administrative process of degree conferral will indicate your official date of graduation.

Commencement is not synonymous with graduation or degree conferral. Students must complete all requirements for the degree to have the degree officially conferred.
