Applying for Graduation
The Rutgers School of Business–Camden awards degrees three times a year: Fall (August / October), Winter (January), and Spring (May). To be considered for graduation, pending graduate students must submit a Diploma Application online within the time frames outlined below.
It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that all the graduation requirements of the school, including certification of the major, have been fully met well before the expected date of graduation. Student records are officially closed upon graduation. A graduate cannot retroactively improve his or her cumulative grade-point average by completing work or taking additional courses after the degree has been conferred.
Students graduating in August, October, and January participate in the commencement ceremony in the following May.
**Unless the application is filed by the appropriate deadline, the degree is not conferred and graduation is delayed.**
Commencement Speaker Nomination Information
One undergraduate student and one graduate student will be selected for the role of student commencement speaker for the Commencement Convocation. Being chosen as a speaker is one of the highest honors a graduate can achieve and carries tremendous responsibility. Graduates from any Program offered by the School of Business–Camden, regardless of location (day, evening, off-campus, or online), are eligible to be nominated as a Commencement Student Speaker.
The Student Speaker Selection Committee will review the submission packages from all finalists and will select the chosen speakers. For more info, go to:
Students are able to have their diplomas mailed or held for pickup at the Rutgers University–Camden One Stop Student Services Center. If selecting the mailing option, please log in to the Rutgers Personal Information Page and click on the “Address Update” tab to verify your address on file is correct.

NOTE: Any student with a financial hold over $100 will have to resolve their hold in order to receive their diploma.

What happens if degree requirements are not met?
Individuals who have not met their requirements for graduation will be notified. If a problem is discovered during the final certification process, notification will be made by certified mail or email. Students who are ineligible to graduate based on their grades will be notified by phone or email.
