The first step to graduating is to fill out the GenSci Graduation Registration survey on the on GenSci Canvas site. Fill this form out before May 1st if you plan to participate in commencement, even if you still have a few classes to finish after spring term.
If you will be done with all your coursework at the end of spring term you also need to apply for your degree on Duck Web. After you log in, click on Student Menu, then Apply for Undergraduate Degree. Please make sure to apply for the actual term you will be finished with all your classes (if you will take a few classes in the summer than your application should be for the end of summer and not for spring term). You can still participate in the commencement ceremony even if you are not done with all your coursework but your official DuckWeb application to graduate has to be filled out for your actual term of completion.
Academic deadlines, including degree application deadlines (on DuckWeb), are listed at: Academic Dates & Deadlines By Term/Semester Students can apply anytime beginning four terms prior to the graduation term. Students should apply during the first few weeks of the term prior to their graduation term. The absolute deadline to apply for graduation is Sunday at midnight after the fourth week of classes. At that point, DuckWeb will no longer allow students to apply for graduation online; students must visit the Office of the Registrar and file a late petition.
