The student’s Degree Progress Audit serves as their “Graduation Contract” and lists all graduation requirements providing the advisor and student the ability to verify that all requirements will be met by the student during their anticipated graduation term.

The Office of the Registrar only verifies the degree requirements for Undergraduate students, while the Graduate School manages the evaluation of the completion of graduation requirements for Graduate Students. The details below describe this process.

Undergraduate Students:

Undergraduate candidates for graduation, after consultation with their advisor(s) must review, complete, and confirm that the requirements for graduation have been met for each major, second major, minor, and certificate via RAMweb. This feature is available to all students who have an intended graduation date listed for the current term.

A student’s graduation contract is their Degree Progress Audit (DARS) and is used for final graduation certification. Students not completing degree requirements in the term they originally intended, must contact the Office of the Registrar, and update their graduation term to accurately reflect when all graduation requirements will be completed.

Please note that some colleges and departments have additional processes (i.e. attendance at a ‘graduation orientation’) for reviewing the contract. If your department has an additional process, they will notify you.

Graduate Students:

The GS25: Application for Graduation Form is submitted to the Graduate School by the deadline date, as outlined on the Graduate School website, of the semester that you intend to complete your degree requirements.

Contact the Graduate School for full details related to your application for graduation.
