Dual-Degree Applicants

Students participating in Dual Degrees – such as MBA/BBA, PharmD/MBA, BA/BBA, etc. – will need to submit two graduation applications (one for each degree).

Special Consideration

Special consideration to participate in the graduation ceremony is extended to undergraduate candidates with grade point averages of 2.000 or higher in the major and overall GPAs while being within six (6) semester hours of meeting all course and hour requirements. To qualify for this special consideration, candidates must complete a graduation application first and then file a ‘Request to Participate in Commencement’ form in addition to the Graduation Application. Before the Registrar’s Office can execute this form, it must be signed by the candidate, the candidate’s adviser and the appropriate dean. The form also includes information about the candidate’s plan to complete the missing components.  Graduate and First Professional students seeking special consideration should contact their program directors. Please Note: This option is only applicable to the May & December Graduation Ceremonies.

If you were previously approved to participate under the “6-Hour Rule” you will need to reapply to be considered for graduation. You do not officially graduate until you reapply.
