Spring semester completion
If you will complete your program requirements by the end of the spring semester, the following timeline will apply to you:
Apply to graduate
Applications open in early June each year with a submission deadline of July 15.
Apply through Memorial Self-Service by submitting an Application to Graduate found under the Graduation and Convocation menu.

Your application will be reviewed by the Registrar's Office and you will be notified if you have any missing requirements.
