After each conferral date, students who have applied to graduate are given six weeks to resolve conflicts delaying degree conferral. However, departments may enforce stricter deadlines. Students should consult with their academic department(s) regarding the deadline for resolving graduation deficiencies.
Eligible circumstances include incomplete or in-progress grades, outstanding study elsewhere grades, graduate transfer of credit to be posted, and dropping an unmet minor. If the issue is resolved by the end of the six-week deadline, your diploma and transcript will still list the official graduation date. Please keep in mind that certain issues are not eligible to be resolved during this six-week grace period. Examples are the thesis and dissertation library deadline, the posting of comprehensive exams, foreign language proficiency, credit by exam, oral exam grades, and the submission of scholarly papers.
