When you apply for graduation, an evaluation of your courses, credits, and GPA will be done by the Records Office (for master's students, please contact the Graduate Studies Office) to determine if you have met the degree requirements. The evaluation is based on the degree requirements from your Catalog-in-Force. You will be contacted to pick up a printout of the evaluation.
The main components are:
General Education Credit Requirements (55 credits)
Major course, credit, and grade requirements
Overall completion of at least 124 credits, of which 32 credits must be earned from UOG courses
Overall upper division (300/400 level) course completion of at least 40 credits
Cumulative minimum GPA of 2.00 (Some majors require higher GPAs. Consult your Catalog for details.)
Students with Bursar's Office or Library obligations may not be allowed to participate in the commencement ceremony and will receive their diplomas and transcripts when accounts are cleared. Please proceed to the Bursar's Office (Administration Building) and the Library to check the status of your account and make payment if necessary.
Non-payment will result in referral to the University’s external collection agency and will be reported to the credit bureau. Students will be referred 30 days after the date of commencement.
Contact the Bursar's Office at email@example.com.
