Student Responsibility

Each student has a responsibility to understand and apply the information contained within the University Catalog. This includes following all processes and policies contained in this chapter on “Graduate Regulations.” For example, key policies include (but are not limited to) making certain that you are properly admitted to the degree program, meet or complete all academic prerequisites and grading standards, file an official Study Plan in a timely manner, meet the program requirements of the specific degree you are seeking, and apply for graduation according to the dates published in each semester's Class Schedule.


Failure to submit forms on time may result in the delay of your graduation. In order to be eligible to register and eventually to graduate with a degree, a student must maintain continuous enrollment status until the award of the degree (see “Continuous Enrollment”).


All master's students must apply for graduation through the Student Center in Titan Online and pay SFS a graduation processing and diploma fee of $115. For detailed instructions on how to apply for a grad check, click here. If you need to change your projected date of graduation, you must inform the Graduate Studies Office as soon as possible by filing a Change of Graduation Date form and paying a $10 fee to the university cashier.
