Applying for the 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.**
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.***
