1. Relatively early in the semester in which you intend to graduate, you must file
an Intent to Graduate Card with the Graduate School. This can be done electronically or on paper, and all of
the forms you need in order to graduate (and instructions for filling them out) can
be found at the graduation page of the Graduate School Forms site.
2. Along with the Intent to Graduate Card, you also must file a Master's Degree Candidacy form with the Graduate Coordinator, who will check for accuracy, have the Chair sign it,
and then forward it to the Graduate School for you.
3. Schedule Project Presentation by November 1 for Fall, April 1 for Spring, July
15 for Summer with the University College Graduate Programs office, Project Chair,
and Second Reader. The instructor of record for your UNIV 7996 | PRST 7998 course
will be the Project Chair and the Second Reader may be a faculty member within the
University College or a content specialist from the University.
4. Submit Project to the Project Chair and the Second Reader by date specified in
the Project Proposal.
5. Present the Project during the scheduled time.
6. Submit in electronic format any required changes to the Project by the posted deadlines.
Deadlines: Please note that there are specific deadlines each semester for the submission of
intent to graduate card, the candidacy form and so forth. If you miss these deadlines
you will most likely be unable to graduate until the following semester. These deadlines
are published each semester on the Graduate School calendar.
