If you are in a thesis or dissertation program and you missed the deadline for graduation for spring 2016, you may still be able to graduate in summer 2016 without taking thesis/dissertation credit during a summer session. To take advantage of this opportunity, download the Second Deadline Application and submit it to the Graduate School by April 29. To be eligible, you must also have defended your thesis or dissertation by April 29. If your thesis or dissertation has been accepted and the approval form and pass/fail form are submitted and accepted by the Graduate School before 5:00 p.m. on May 19, you may graduate in summer 2016, but will not be required to register for thesis or dissertation credit in summer 2016 (provided you have met all other requirements for graduation). Contact the graduation specialists if you have any questions.
