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.
