Request that the program coordinator complete a major evaluation two quarters before you expect to graduate. Allow one month for the evaluation to be completed. Contact a program coordinator now. 


The program coordinator will send you a copy of your major evaluation along with supplemental materials and the appropriate degree application form. After reviewing these materials meet with your academic adviser if any last minute adjustments to your plan of study need to be made.


Upon receiving the graduation application materials, complete the degree application and submit it along with the major evaluation and supplemental materials to the Registrar's Office. To avoid a late fee, submit degree application materials promptly. The address is on the degree application.
