Candidates for the M.A. degree must file a candidacy form, http://www.memphis.edu/gradschool/form/mdc.php, and a statement of intent to graduate, https://saweb.memphis.edu/commencement/intenttograduate/, with the Dean of the Graduate School at the beginning of the semester or session
in which they expect to graduate. You need a 3.00 average to graduate and you must
meet this average by the beginning of the term in which you plan to graduate. Grades
made during the final semester may make up for previous deficiencies, but you will
not be able to graduate until the next semester.
