The Graduate Records office is one of the longstanding units within the Graduate school. This unit is led by the Assistant Director. The team consists of three academic assistants. This unit is responsible for degree certification and recommendations of more than 4,500 candidates for graduate degrees each year. Additionally, the unit is responsible for maintaining, monitoring, archiving, and the oversight of graduate student records, evaluation of transfer credit, and international credentials. In addition, the unit is responsible for information verification as well as maintain and archiving Graduate Council academic programs and policies records.
Degree certification begins once the student completes and submits the graduate degree application. The Graduate Records staff review all student academic records to verify that Graduate Council minimum requirements have been satisfied. Graduate Students should communicate with their academic units if they have questions about this process.
