Oral and Comprehensive Exams / Dissertation Defense
Please make sure to schedule a date for your oral and comprehensive exams with your respective Department Chairs for the major and minor(s). (Not required for MBA/MPACC candidates.) Deadlines for completion of comprehensive exams and thesis defense are determined by your department. Ph.D. candidates MUST schedule their dissertation defense with the appropriate department/committee.
NOTE: Students not completing requirements will need to reapply for a future graduation term.
Concurrent Enrollment/Transfer Work
Students enrolled at another institution during their last semester MUST submit a "Request for Early Grade Form" available in the Office of the University Registrar. The official transcripts from other institutions MUST be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar by the deadline in the Calendar of Events section.
All substitutions should have been submitted to the Office of the University Registrar prior to your submission of the graduation application. Not doing so may cause delays in the processing of your graduation checkout or prevent you from graduating altogether.
Diplomas and transcript(s), if requested, will NOT be released until all obligations and holds have been cleared with the university. You may view your holds by logging on to Uconnect and clicking on the "My Business" tab.
If you have any questions on any of the above, please contact the Office of the University Registrar at (956) 326-2250 for more details.
