If you plan to complete all of your courses in the Spring 2012 semester, or during the 2012 summer sessions, you will need to apply for graduation on Wiser. The graduation application deadline is March 16. You may not get a confirmation of your graduation application sent to you; but you can run a new audit, and at the very top, immediately under your ID number, you will see a new line: GRADUATION DATE: 06/01/12 (or appropriate August Date) the day after you successfully apply for graduation. You can also confirm it with the Registrar’s Office directly if necessary.
Students who complete all course work and graduate in December 2011, May 2012 and August 2012 are invited to the Commencement Ceremonies held on June 1, 2012. If you know that you will need to take summer classes, but have applied for May graduation, you will need to go to the Registrar’s Office to change this. Anyone with a May graduation application on file will not be able to register for any summer or fall classes because the University assumes you will be done with coursework at the end of this semester and does not give you access to Wiser registration functions for future terms.
