Steps to Graduate - AS&E Undergraduate Students

If you are eligible for graduation in May, August, or February, you must complete the steps outlined below. The due dates for each step will vary depending on which month you will graduate, but please keep in mind that you need to complete all the steps. Please see the calendar for graduation deadlines.

Apply For Your Anticipated Graduation Date Through SIS

Applications are typically available through SIS beginning in the month of September. 

Locate and Complete Your Graduation Checklists or Degree Sheets

Liberal Arts BA/BS students must complete one checklist for each major and/or minor. Checklists for majors and minors within A&S are typically found on the individual department websites. Liberal Arts BA/BS and BFA students must complete the Ugrad Application available in SIS after applying to graduate. Liberal Arts students who matriculated prior to the fall of 2013 will not have access to the Ugrad Application in SIS and should complete the Degree Audit Worksheet; BFA students who matriculated prior to the fall of 2016 should complete this Degree Audit Worksheet.  The Degree Progress tool is a resource to help students complete the either audit worksheet.

Engineering students must complete a Degree Sheet, as well as a Checklist for each second major or minor.

Meet With Your Advisor

Meet with your major advisor or advisors to discuss course registration and get the necessary signatures for each checklist. Be sure to observe any internal deadlines your individual departments may have set.

Ugrad Applications are available on SIS under the academics tab only once you have applied to graduate. Liberals Arts BFA Degree Packets consist of the completed Ugrad Application.
