Graduation is not automatic, it is a process. To best assist students in their progress towards receiving a degree, all students must complete an Intent to Graduate form when they are enrolled in their 89th credit hour. Things to keep in mind when submitting a request for an audit include:
Finally, during the first two weeks of a pending graduate’s final semester, he/she must submit an Application for Graduation. This step is critical for graduation. Up until a student completes this step, he/she has not indicated any specified intention of finishing his/her degree.
Congratulations to the Class of 2013! Thank you, to all of the faculty and staff who made commencement a huge success!
Our next commencement will be held on May 10, 2014. When planning ahead, guests are encouraged to explore the commencement FAQs as they make preparations to visit the Gunnison valley to attend the celebration. Prior to graduation, a senior reception will be held in the University Center. This event is an opportunity for Western State Colorado University to recognize graduates for their acheivements and provides family and friends a chance to mingle with faculty and staff.
**Graduates! Please be mindful of critical deadlines pertaining to graduation, information will be sent to you early in your final semester. Missing applicable deadlines may have an adverse impact on your eligibility to participate in commencement. Any questions or concerns should be directed to Ginny Hayes, in the Office of the Registrar or by calling 970-943-2130.
