Are You Ready to Graduate?


Use this to-do list to ensure that you complete all the tasks required for graduation.

Things to Consider...

Make sure your coursework has not expired:

  • All program coursework must be completed within seven consecutive years. Coursework taken more than seven years ago (but less than 10 years ago) at the time of graduation will require a Validation of Outdated Coursework form
  • Courses taken 10 years prior to time of graduation will be considered expired and cannot be counted toward program completion.
