About Graduation Data

For undergraduate students pursuing degree or certificate programs, the Graduation Data page displays your active program(s) and plan(s). As applicable, you can view and update your expected graduation term, your name as you want it to appear on your diploma, and the address to which you want your diploma mailed.  You may also view and update a Diploma Email address to which communication regarding your diploma will be sent.

Graduate Degree or Certificate Program Students

For graduate students pursuing degree or certificate programs, the Graduation Data page displays your active program(s) and plan(s). Also, you can view and update your name as it will appear on your diploma. As applicable, you can view your expected graduation term.

Note: For graduate students, your expected graduation term is your Statute of Limitations. You are expected to complete all degree requirements by the end of the listed term. For information regarding extensions, please contact your Graduate Program Director.
