The Spring 2017 Graduate Application for Degree (GAFD) is available on the Graduation page of the Graduate School website. Completion of this form ensures completion of degree paperwork, and it is also required for graduating students who wish to be recognized in the printed Commencement program. Students are strongly encouraged to apply before to be certain that their names will be printed in the program. After , a student may still apply to graduate, but their name may not be included in the printed Commencement program. Students are also encouraged to take note of all degree requirements in the Graduate School Manual.
