Office of Graduate Studies
Letter of Completion
As a courtesy, the Office of Graduate Studies may issue a letter of completion for an individual student upon written request from the student. The letter of completion certifies that the student has completed all academic requirements for the degree and states the date the degree will be awarded.
This letter may be requested anytime from the point the student has completed all requirements for the award of the degree and until five days prior to commencement. A student in master’s thesis option or doctoral program must have completed all degree requirements, including final clearance from the Thesis Office, to be eligible to request this letter. For a student in master’s non-thesis option programs, requests for a letter will be accepted only if the student has completed all degree plan course work and the final examination results, if applicable, have been approved by the Office of Graduate Studies.
In addition to making a request for a letter with the Office of Graduate Studies, the student must also obtain clearance from the Student Debt Management Office (Pavilion, Room 113). The Student Debt Management Office will verify to the Office of Graduate Studies whether all financial obligations to the University have been satisfied.
