The registrar has sent out the following early notice for graduate students, who are planning to graduate in the Spring ’13 or Summer ’13 semesters. Please see below and note the process for applying for graduation.
We would like to inform you of the deadline for applying to graduate. If you anticipate completing all degree requirements by May 31, 2013 or August 31, 2013, the deadline to turn in your degree application to the Registrar’s Office is Friday, March 15, 2013.
Procedure to file for graduation:
Degree applications are available for you to print out and are located at http://www.umb.edu/registrar/. If you are in the College of Management, or are a Nursing or Clinical Psychology student, please select the correct degree application. Students in all other programs should select the General Degree Application.
Click on “Graduation”, then click on “Applying for Graduation”. Scroll down and choose the correct degree application.
You must complete the degree application in its entirety, sign, and date it. We will NOT accept any incomplete degree applications. Writing “See attached” on the degree application and submitting a transcript is NOT sufficient. We suggest printing an unofficial copy of your transcript to facilitate recording all courses, grades and transfer credit information on the degree application. You can request your unofficial transcript through WISER. Please note that the transcript does not need to be turned in with the degree application. The completed degree application must be turned in to the Registrar’s Office by the due date of March 15, 2013.
Your Degree Application will then be reviewed and signed by your Graduate Program Director. If there are any outstanding issues with your degree requirements that will prevent you from graduating on the date you requested, you will be notified by your Graduate Program Director.
Please be aware you must be in good academic, administrative, and financial standing in order to receive your degree. This includes being registered for courses or having registered for the program fee for the Spring 2013 semester. Any outstanding obligations will prevent your degree from being awarded. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Registrar’s Office.
Potential May and August graduates will be invited to attend the May 31, 2013 commencement ceremony.
The deadline of March 15, 2013 will be strictly enforced.
