RE:       Only 2 days left to apply to graduate for Summer 2013 ***Wednesday, July 3, 2013 ***


Just a reminder… if you plan to graduate this term, you have 2 days left to apply. There are no late degree applications for the Summer term!


For your convenience, we have developed the following checklist for students who plan to graduate at the end of the term:


(1) All changes to your degree program must be entered into GIMS by your academic unit no later than 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 3, 2013.  Changes include: degree title, degree type (thesis to non-thesis, project in lieu of thesis, etc.), college, major, and, if applicable, minor and/or concentration.


(2)  All changes to your supervisory committee (including a change from thesis to non-thesis option) must be entered into GIMS by your academic unit no later than 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2013. 


(3) Final Graduation Application Deadline: Wednesday, July 3, 2013.  Remember, there are no late degree applications for summer term!


(4) Credit Transfer Deadline: The Graduate School must receive all requests for transfer credit from academic units by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2013.
