How do I indicate my intent and apply to graduate?
Prior to registering for classes, if your earned hours indicate that you are within a year of completing degree requirements, you will need to answer a question about when you plan to graduate. The Graduation Intent question asks you to indicate whether you intend to complete the requirements of your program of study in the coming year: the upcoming spring semester, the summer semester, or fall semester. If you indicate that you plan to finish in the semester/term for which you are registering, you will receive an email with a link to the online graduation application. Following submission of your graduation application and registration for your final semester, our office will conduct a graduation audit and you will be notified, through your Dominican email account, if there are any deficiencies that impede your ability to graduate. If you are eligible to graduate, based on earned and currently enrolled coursework, a "Prospective Graduate" hold will be placed on your account and you can assume that you are on track to confer your degree.
The graduation application is a requirement to earn a degree. The intent question helps us identify students that need access to the online application. The intent question also helps us to send links to the application and courtesy reminders to apply. Declaring intent IS NOT the same as applying for graduation.
