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). If you have any questions about this, please contact your graduation auditor before you submit an application.

Special Consideration Students who have already participated:

If you were previously approved to participate in a ceremony under a special consideration status (6 Hour Rule, Law 3 Hour Rule, etc), per the paperwork that was submitted and approved for use of the given special consideration status, the student must reapply in their final term to be considered for graduation. A student who participated only in a ceremony under a special consideration status, does not officially graduate until they reapply in their final term of completion and all requirements are completed.
