After all of your hard work and dedication to honing your craft, it’s time to graduate and start the next stage of your life. The Graduate School wishes to help you navigate all of the stages of the graduation process, so that you are able to finish on time and with as little stress as possible. There are forms to complete that signify that each of the requirements of your degree have been met, and in order to help us process these documents, following the deadlines avoids unnecessary delays. And once everything is done, we hope you will join us for the hooding ceremony, where our graduates are celebrated before friends, family, and the university.
