In order to graduate in a specific semester, you must apply for graduation within the application deadline period.

If you do not successfully complete all academic requirements by the end of the semester, you must reapply for graduation for the following cycle. Please refer to the specific deadlines for the completion of requirements for each graduation.

If you have applied for graduation, but do not plan to complete your current program's academic requirements this semester, please contact Graduation Services to have your graduation application withdrawn; include your student ID number. You may then apply for the graduation period in which you anticipate completing your requirements.

* College of Dentistry, Leonard N. Stern School of Business (Graduate), School of Medicine, and School of Professional Studies (non-credit) students apply directly at their school.
