Instructions

Students pursing more than one degree seeking program must submit the online graduation application for EACH program. Follow the instructions below for each program for which you are applying to graduate. Please note:

  • Students must declare any/all programs before they can apply to graduate in any/all of them; see Declaring or changing a major for more information.
  • To graduate with more than one degree seeking program, the requirements for both programs must be completed by the graduation date (this does not apply to Certificates and/or AA degrees).
  • If requirements for all undergraduate programs will not be met by the graduation date, graduation should either be delayed until all requirements are met, or the program that will not be completed should be dropped. 
    • See Declaring or changing a major for more information on removing a program. 
    • After graduation, if a student decides to continue pursuing a program that was previously dropped, they must reapply through the Office of Admissions as a second degree seeking student. 
      • Please see the Academic Catalog for more information regarding second degree seeking requirements.
