Miss the Graduation Application Deadline?

The online graduation application is only available after the submission deadline per special request through the Office of the Registrar.  Request for a late application will incur a $25.00 late fee. 

Graduation applications are available for students to complete online in the time period between advanced registration and the start of the semester students intend to graduate.  This time frame allows students the ability to make any changes that may be necessary in the event there is a deficiency found during the audit. 

What is a Graduation Audit

 
Upon submission of the graduation application, your academic record is thoroughly examined in the Office of the Registrar to determine if you will have completed all courses required for your degree by the end of your final term (based on earned and currently enrolled coursework).  Your record will be reviewed to identify anything that may be missing from your core curriculum requirements, major and minor requirements, or total credit requirement. Based on the results of your graduation audit, one of the holds shown below will be placed on your account; see below.  Graduation audits are typically completed by the add/drop deadline of your final semester.  This allows students time to make schedule changes within the add/drop period if any deficiencies are found.  Students are encouraged to submit graduation applications early in the period between advance registration and the first day of classes to ensure their audit will be complete before the add/drop deadline.  After your record has been audited and a hold has been placed on your account, you will no longer be able to add or drop courses online.  Any schedule changes must be completed using the add/drop/withdrawal form.
 
Graduation Holds
 
GX = Prospective Graduate (you are tentatively on track to graduate)
GD = Prospective Graduate/Deficient (a deficiency must be resolved to be eligible to graduate)
GI = Prospective Graduate/Incomplete (an incomplete must be resolved to be eligible to graduate)
GT = Transfer Transcript Graduation (official transfer credit is needed  to be eligible to graduate)
 

Your audit is conducted using requirements of the Bulletin in effect at the time you began your studies at Dominican (or your declared bulletin).  It is in your Bulletin that you will find clearly outlined policies regarding residency, major fields of study, and transfer work.
