Degree Progress Report

If you are trying to graduate in 4 years, pass general education requirements and prerequisite courses, then follow the path recommended in your 4-Year Academic Plan (MAP). Your Degree Progress Report is your countdown to graduation! Academic Evaluators correct errors in Degree Progress Reports, and will ultimately post your degree to your transcript or deny graduation.


Apply a year before your anticipated graduation date. Apply to graduate for the semester you will complete all degree requirements and coursework. Commencement is separate from the graduation application. Go here for information on commencement.
