Diploma application reminder — The deadline for returning diploma applications to the Registrar’s Office, Luther Hall 216, is Friday, Sept. 30. Students with a third-year classification must complete a diploma application to initiate the graduation process. Advising worksheets will be reviewed in October and November for those students submitting diploma applications by Sept. 30. Advisers, together with the Registrar’s Office, exercise all possible care in checking students’ records for graduation. However, it is the sole responsibility of the student to fulfill all requirements for a degree. Complete the diploma application even if you do not expect to graduate until the 2018-19 academic year. Diplomas will not be issued without a diploma application. The diploma application should not be used to declare your major. Students should declare their major(s) and/or minor(s) by the end of the first term of their second year. The Declaration of Major/Minor form is available in the Registrar’s Office and requires the appropriate adviser and department chair signature(s).
