APPLICATION FOR DEGREE CONFERRAL

Applying for Degree Conferral is a mandatory step that all students (undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral) must take in order to be awarded their degree and receive their diploma. There is a fee involved. Your application triggers a review of your degree progress by your program/advisor.
