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.**
August, October, and January graduates who did not elect to have their diplomas mailed are able to pick up their diplomas at any time, including the day of their graduation ceremony, at the One Stop.
Diplomas for May graduates will be available by the beginning of July. 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. If your mailing address needs to be updated, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: Any student with a financial hold over $100 will have to resolve their hold in order to receive their diploma.
Should you have any questions or issues, please feel free to email the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com
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.
***Only students who have successfully completed all graduation requirements may participate in the commencement ceremony and convocation.***
