Preparation for Graduation

Students are responsible for notifying the University of their intent to graduate. At the beginning of the semester in which they will meet degree requirements and plan to graduate, they should notify the University by using the Apply for Graduation link on the My Academics page in LionPATH. Please refer to the LionPATH help page for directions on how to use this application.

Prior to applying for graduation, students should verify that their academic record is accurate by viewing academic plans through Update Academics in LionPATH. It is very important to add minor plans that have been completed which are not showing on the student record and it is equally important to remove minor plans that are no longer being completed from student record. Once students apply for graduation academic records can no longer be updated.
