Degree Conferral

Although a student may have completed all degree program requirements, graduation is not automatic. Students who are ready to graduate must apply for Degree Conferral with the Office of the University Registrar in order to identify the semester in which they expect to complete their degree requirements. Undergraduate students must have 90 completed credits to apply for degree conferral.

View Instructions for submitting the degree conferral application.

The Office of the University Registrar will assess the candidates' eligibility for degree conferral. The official conferral date will be the end of the semester in which all degree requirements have been met. Candidates for degree conferral must submit their application to the Office of the University Registrar by the deadline on their conferral date.

It is the responsibility of the student to ensure all degree requirements have been satisfied as shown on the program evaluation available in StudentCenter.Chapman.edu prior to the graduation date listed below, including all transfer work, for the diploma to be awarded. Undergraduate students with questions regarding requirement completion should contact the Academic Advising Center for a graduation review. Graduate students should contact their department advisor for questions regarding graduation requirements. Students are notified by the Registrar's Office through their Chapman email when their degree is awarded.
