Missed the Deadline?
Failure to apply to graduate before the deadline may impact: the number of commencement tickets available to you, inclusion of your name in the commencement book, and the awarding of your degree. Please apply by the deadline. If you miss the deadline, Law students will have a hold placed on their record that may delay registration or graduation and must contact Law School Registrar, to discuss options for filing late.
You do not need to confirm your application to the Law School Registrar once you have submitted online. You can verify your submission after 48 hours via your Banner account, using the ‘Degree Works’ link under ‘Student Records;’ your status will be listed in the top block labeled, ‘Graduation Application Status’ as either ‘applied’ or ‘not applied.’
