Graduation Process

Applying for Graduation

The application process involves meeting with the Linguistics Director to conduct a major evaluation and submitting a Degree Application to the Registrar's office.  Students should schedule this meeting and apply for graduation at least two quarters prior to the quarter they expect to graduate. Students who are not sure which quarter they will graduate can discuss this with the Linguistics Director.  Bring the Major Evaluation Form or Minor Evaluation Form and copy of the Total Academic History (viz., transcript, which is available at Web4U) to the meeting.  The Director will be able to determine which courses remain for completing the major and help determine which quarter the student will be eligible to graduate. Students should also review the University Graduation Requirements (below) to determine if they have satisfied all of the requirements.

Students will then submit the completed Major Evaluation Form or Minor Evaluation Form  with their Degree Application Form to the Registrar's Office (Old Main 230).
