Reminder: December graduation deadline

The deadline to apply for December graduation is July 6.

Remember you do not automatically graduate when you reach 120 credits. You must apply to graduate. (The form is available at the Dean's office in Thackeray Hall; the Religious Studies office does not have copies of this.)

And you must apply to graduate the semester BEFORE you plan to graduate.

Thus, the deadline for April 2008 graduation will be in the fall.
