The following checklist will help to guide you through the process of completing the requirements for degree conferral. You should refer to the graduation information on the Registrar's website and maintain contact with your thesis committee and Graduate Program Director throughout the semester for information and any changes in deadlines.
You must be registered during the semester in which you intend to graduate. For those students completing a thesis, you must be registered for at least 1 credit of 799. The last day to register for Spring 2022 is January 31, 2022 (please note that a late registration fee may apply).
Electronic submission of the thesis
*It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all required approvals are obtained by the submission deadline and that required paperwork is included with the dissertation submission. The student is solely responsible for insuring that all necessary materials are submitted to the University Library by the submission deadline.
If you are unable to finish your degree requirements in time to graduate in May 2022, you will need to file a new intent to graduate for August 2022. See graduation timelines on the Registrar's website at https://registrar.gmu.edu/students/graduation/.
