If you are planning to graduate in Fall 2018 (degree conferral: February 9, 2019), below is detailed information about the academic process to Apply for Graduation and the required Graduation Checkout steps that you need to complete by the associated deadline noted below.
STEP ONE - DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 18
- Apply to Graduate in SIS, Enter Your Diploma Name in SIS and Enter Your Diploma Mailing Address in SIS
NOTE: If you don't add a name type specifically as Diploma, your name will be listed as blank when we run a list to submit to the Diploma publisher.
- Dual Degree students (MS/MALD, MS/MA (UEP), MS/MPH) should apply for graduation in SIS for both degrees.
STEP TWO - DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 19
- Fill out your Friedman Degree Requirements Worksheet for the class year that you started your program at Friedman (indicate "TBD" in the Grade column of your Worksheet for the courses you are currently enrolled in for Fall 2018 and "E" for an approved Exemption from a course or requirement).
- Obtain approval signatures on the Worksheet from your Academic Advisor, Division Chair/Program Director or Thesis Chair and submit to email@example.com.
NOTE: If you do not see on your unofficial transcript your approved Exemption listed at the bottom, or your approved Specialization (only AFE, BMN, and FPAN/FANPP students) or your approved transfer of credit, please complete the appropriate forms listed below and obtain the necessary approvals and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org:
DUAL-DEGREE STUDENTS: Please complete and submit the applicable dual-degree form to email@example.com with your completed/approved Friedman Degree Requirement Worksheet:
- MS/MPH (Public Health): MS/MPH Transfer Credit Transcript Reconciliation Form (meet with Aviva Must to complete)
- MS/MALD (Fletcher): MS/MALD Transfer Credit Transcript Reconciliation Form
- MS/MA (AFE or FPAN & UEP): MS/MA UEP Transfer Credit Transcript Reconciliation Form
STEP THREE - DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 19
If you are a BMN, NEPI/NDS, or MNSP student, please be sure to submit to firstname.lastname@example.org your CITI Completion PDF so this fulfilled degree requirement may be added to your academic record in SIS:
STEP FOUR - DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 19
Complete ALL of these online forms:
- Qualtrics Online Survey to enter information for the Office of Alumni Relations
- Qualtrics Online Survey to enter how to pronounce your name when announced at Commencement (even though you're graduating in the fall semester, we hope you'll come back and march at Commencement on May 19, 2019).
- Dean Saltzman will distribute the Exit Survey to graduating students beginning November 19 so you'll have time to complete in advance of the Examinations Period; it is a Graduation Checkout requirement.
