Graduation Checklist

Read this graduation checklist to stay on track for graduation.

1. Completion of Requirements

An application for graduation must be on file in the College of Graduate and Professional Studies in order to be eligible for graduation in a specific term. All degree requirements are to be completed prior to the close of the semester/session the student’s degree is to be awarded. If the degree is not awarded, the student must reapply for graduation through their MyISU Portal at the beginning of the term in which they will complete all degree requirements.

2. Completion of Course Work

All "incomplete" credits that are necessary for completion of degree requirements must be completed with satisfactory grades and on file in the Office of Registration and Records on or before the close of the semester/session.

3. Transfer Credit

Transferring credits requires that an official transcript and a transfer form be submitted to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies (CGPS). These forms should be submitted as soon as possible. Failure to do so can result in insufficient time for processing and/or issues being found so late that a student has insufficient time to take corrective action prior to their proposed graduation date.

4. Fees and Delinquencies

All obligations to the University, such as library delinquencies, residence hall fees, and breakage fees, must be met by the close of the semester/session the student's degree is to be awarded. Registration holds on your ISU account will prevent your diploma from being delivered and any transcripts being awarded until it is resolved.

Note: In some cases, academic departments may have earlier deadlines than those listed above. Students should verify requirements and deadlines with their academic advisors. Materials received after deadlines are subject to being processed the following semester.
