To apply for graduation, you must meet with the DAEE Student Success Coordinator for two academic semesters (typically one year) before your expected graduation date. For example, if you plan to graduate in Spring 2020, you must meet with the Student Service coordinator to fill out the necessary paperwork (Application of Baccalaureate Degree) in Spring 2019.
To meet with Student Success Coordinator, please schedule an appointment by visiting her appointment scheduler at:
Please note that walk-ins without a scheduled appointment are not permitted. Students who show up without a scheduled appointment will be referred to the appointment scheduler.
Once the Application of Baccalaureate Degree is filed, the Registrar's Office will certify all university requirements including Core 2.0.
No news is good news. The Registrar's Office sends emails (MSU student preferred email address) to all students who have some kind of graduation deficiency (e.g., not registered for required courses, Core 2.0 requirements unmet, and/or total credits lacking). These emails require your full and immediate attention. If you receive a "deficiency" email and have questions, contact the Office of Student Services and they will help you figure out a plan to correct the deficiency. It is the student's responsibility to meet all degree requirements.
Review your Degree Works to check your worksheet and to look for any notes that may be posted at the end.
If you have submitted an application for your Degree, the Registrar's Office will send you information regarding Commencement. General commencement information includes: time, location, cap and gown availability, and invitations. Commencement information will be emailed to students' preferred email address listed in MyInfo 4-6 weeks before graduation.
No. Your diploma will be mailed to the permanent mailing address that you provided in MyInfo and on your Application for Baccalaureate Degree. You are responsible for providing the Registrar's Office (through MyInfo) with a correct postal address.
Inform the DAEE Student Success Coordinator as soon as possible if you plan to change your graduation term.
