Submitting Your Final Plan of Study

Although the Registrar’s Office deadline is the fourth week of your final semester, your plan first needs to be approved by your faculty advisor and then by Inda Watrous, so we ask that you follow the deadlines and directions below.

December grads can walk in Commencement the May after they finish their degree.

August grads can walk in Commencement the May before they finish their degree. To be sure you are included in May Commencement you must apply for graduation within the first four weeks of your final spring semester.
