Graduation

You must meet these criteria to graduate:
  • Have scheduled or held your Final Committee Meeting no later than during your final quarter.
  • Have registered and passed or be in the final stages of completing LL 302 Externship, FA 303 or FA 304 Advanced Project and LL 390 Summit Seminar.
  • Have a grade point average of 2.0 or above.

1) If you qualify, login to Campus Connect, and go to Student Center>My Academics>Apply to Graduate by the deadline for that quarter (see deadlines below). Remember to enter your mailing address under Diploma Address so your diploma can be mailed to you.

2) Submit any remaining Independent Learning Pursuits (ILPs) and transfer courses to your academic committee by the deadline for that quarter to ensure a timely review. Work submitted by you or your faculty mentor after the deadline will delay your degree conferral. Deadlines subject to change without notice. If you retook an SNL class, your GPA will be recalculated automatically at the end of your graduating quarter.

We hope you will attend the next Commencement ceremony, held once a year in June. Review the Commencement website for details.  Order a cap and gown online. You are eligible to participate in commencement only if you fulfilled all the above graduation requirements. Speak directly with your SNL faculty mentor if you have questions. Cap and gowns are available the day of the ceremony.
