Graduation Information

During your final summer, to graduate you MUST do the following by the deadlines indicated (assuming your Program of Study has been submitted and accepted):

  1. Read the information on the following link and view the video:
  2. By the end of the first week in June - Arrange your final examination date with Dr. Tracz, Dr. Yu, or Dr. Payne. (must be scheduled between June 1 - August 1)
  3. By the end of the second week in June - Complete and submit to the graduate school the Approval for Final Examination Form to the Graduate School (If you are choosing to complete the non-report option, this had to have been indicated on your Program of Study form and a minimum of 36 course credits completed without the two graduate report credits)
  4. By July 1 - Complete the iSIS Graduation Application
  5. Complete your final examination between June 1 - August 1. Signed Final Examination ballots (and ETDR ballots) are to be submitted to the Graduate School immediately following the final examination and prior to August 15. (Specific days, Wednesdays late June through early July, will be set aside with students being scheduled for their final examination which typically consists of selected questions from each committee member relating to coursework and to schedule the defense of the graduate report itself)
  6. August 1 is the final deadline, as designated by the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, to submit your graduate report through the ETDR system and to compete the Exit Survey and Alumni Association Information. (In reference to graduate reports, students should have enrolled for one credit of graduate report each fall and spring semester between their second and third summer so the report will be complete upon arriving for the third summer, thus only requiring corrections and edits)

You will receive an email via campus mail in late Spring through which you are required to respond back to Dr. Burrack, Chair of Graduate Studies of the receipt of the Email constituting an electronic signature that you have read the requirements and conditions for matriculation in the master's program and that you understand the consequences of not doing so will delay your graduation until the Fall semester and require additional enrollment in the Fall semester. A copy of this and the returned communication, with the date and time of receipt, will be placed into your student file.
