ready for graduation?
By the end of your junior year, you should
schedule a meeting with an Academic Advisor to review your degree evaluation
and begin discussing graduation. Although it may be a year away, the deadline
to submit your application for graduation is as important as the schedule for
your final exams.
Graduation application deadlines fall nine
months prior to the commencement ceremony. This time is crucial for the
Registrar’s Office and the Academic Advising Center. Once you submit your
application to the Registrar’s Office, your degree evaluation is reviewed and
an email is sent to you regarding your pending requirements. This gives you an
outline for your final year of coursework and allows you to review if all
departmental approved course substitutions have been processed.

Regarding Graduation Requirements
Some degrees at UTB have specific requirements
for graduation, such as internships, exams or department approved courses. Make
sure to submit your request for registration approval or any necessary
documents on time to assure that you will complete your degree requirements as
you have planned. If you are unsure if your degree has these requirements or
would like to know who to contact to submit documentation/requests to, meet
with an advisor to discuss your degree.
Your Graduation Date
If you have not completed all of the required
coursework or degree requirements by the semester that you have applied for,
you will need to change the graduation date on your application. This can be
done by contacting the Registrar’s Office via phone, email or in person and
notify them of the change in your application. You should complete any updates
as soon as possible, to avoid additional fees or delays in your graduation.
It may occur that you choose to change the
degree that your are pursuing after you submit your application for graduation.
If this happens, you must meet with an academic advisor to process the
necessary changes to your student file and receive a signed copy of your new
degree evaluation. Once you have completed this, you will need to submit a copy
of your signed degree evaluation to the Registrar’s Office so that they can
update your student record.
