Graduation Application Deadline for January 2015 September 26 Until 5pm at the Registrar's


Graduation Applications for CAD students are due Tuesday, September 16th, 2014, by 4 pm.  Late applications are permitted but the department cannot guarantee applications will be processed and signed by the University deadline of September 26th.  Please refer to Registrar's website for further instructions on late applications.




Participation in the May 18, 2014, CAD Recognition Ceremonies will be open to the following individuals: 

1)  September 2013 graduates; 2) January 2014 graduates; and 3) students who have been approved for May 2014 graduation and who have completed ALL courses for the major by the end of Spring 2014.  This decision brings us in line with University practice.


More information about the University commencement ceremony can be found here:



The University deadline for summer graduation is February 21, 2014. Application must be completed, signed by student and department advisor/chair, paid for at the Bursar's Office and submitted to the Registrar's Office by this date.

The graduation application and filing fee is $100. This fee entitles students to an official graduation evaluation of progress toward meeting baccalaureate degree requirements. If students qualify for graduation by the designated graduation date, they may participate in the annual commencement ceremony. Students who reapply for graduation must submit another graduation application and pay the $100 fee.  There's is a $5 late charge if turned in after the deadline.
