Applying for Graduation

You are able to apply for graduation through your CIS student account. Before applying for graduation, you should meet with your major and/or minor advisor to review requirements and discuss next steps. 

Graduation Appointments

Graduation appointments with the International Studies Advisor last approximately 20-30 minutes and you should bring a current copy of your DARS report..
