Students must complete all degree requirements to be approved for graduation. In addition to completing your degree requirements, you must also apply to graduate via the Registrar's Office before your degree will be conferred. At the beginning of your last semester, you should visit the Registrar's Graduation website for graduation information and answers to frequently asked questions. The Checklists for Graduation (see below) will help to guide you through the process of finishing the requirements for and obtaining your degree.
Remember to keep in contact with your thesis or dissertation committee and the Director of Graduate Programs for further information and any changes in deadlines. Plan to attend the Degree Celebration for the Social Sciences and the George Mason Commencement, described in the links below.
