Graduation Procedures

For a detailed list of steps to a successful graduation, please visit the Registrar’s Website.

Submitting Your Final Plan of Study

All CAHNR students need to submit a final plan of study the semester before they semester they intend to graduate. For example, if you plan on graduating in May, you should submit your final plan online by the end of the previous fall semester.

Final plans need advisor and department head approval before being reviewed by Degree Audit. In order to submit your final plan online via the StudentAdmin system, you first need to apply for graduation online. When submitting your online final plan of study, the 36 credit group courses the student and advisor decide to use need to be written out in one of two ways. 1) Students may write the 36 credit group courses in the comments box, or 2) Students may fill out the 36 credit group attachment page (in Word or PDF) and attach it to the online submission.

Although students are encouraged to submit their final plan online, Degree Audit will still accept paper forms. The paper version may be more appropriate for students with complicated plans, such as a high number of transfer credits, dual degree, or double majors.
