Departmental Degree Completion Verification

Degree Completion

Once you complete your degree requirements, fill out the top half of this form and submit it to your department/program advisor for completion and submission. Your advisor is responsible for verifying that you have completed the program requirements and will route the document for required signatures.

Once Graduate Studies receives this form, your file will be reviewed for completion and a request for the posting of your degree will go to Records. Please allow 4-6 weeks for the completion of all processes, the posting of your degree to your transcripts, and the mailing of your diploma.


Often confused with degree completion, or graduation, commencement is the annual celebration held for those students, who are completing their degree. Participation in commencement does not guarantee degree completion. For more information, visit the Commencement website.
