Summer 2012 graduation dates, deadlines and important information

Here are some very important dates regarding the SUMMER 2012 Graduation list:

  • Saturday JULY 28 – End of Semester
  • Thursday, AUGUST 2 – ALL GRADES DUE
  • Monday AUGUST 6 – Grades available to students/faculty/staff on the web. Departments should verify all grades are recorded on student transcripts and investigate any/all missing grades that may prevent a student being approved for graduation
  • AUGUST 6 – AUGUST 17 – Departments responsible for determining, resolving and notifying students of any/all administrative issues that may prevent a student from graduating in the SUMMER 2012 semester
  • Friday, AUGUST 17 – ALL COMPLETED SUMMER 2012 GRADUATING STUDENT FILES TO PAUL FOR FINAL REVIEW
  • Friday, AUGUST 17 – Departments responsible for notifying/advising ALL student(s) who have been denied SUMMER 2012 graduation. THIS IS AN ADVISING FUNCTION AND IS NOT PERFORMED IN THE DEAN’S OFFICE
  • Friday, SEPTEMBER 7 – Degrees posted on official student transcripts; official transcripts showing degrees posted available to students
  • Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 19 – Diplomas mailed to students (Diplomas mailed to addresses on ISIS and provided by students.)

Directions for summer 2012 graduation files:

  • All student files MUST contain the most current term (Summer 2102) transcript that indicates ALL grades including SUMMER 2012 grades. If a student’s transcript shows a missing grade for any course that is needed for graduation, the department should immediately investigate the missing grade to determine the reason and resolve any administrative issues.
  • ALL  incomplete (I) and in progress (IP) grades MUST have a letter grade on the transcript for ALL semesters including SUMMER 2012. (Remember CAND 5940 does not ever display a grade only the distinction ****).
  • DO NOT PLACE ANY FORMS THAT ARE IN NEED OF PROCESSING IN THE STUDENT’S FILE OR STAPLE THEM TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE FILE. All forms that need to be processed must be completed by following the proper college procedures set forth by Associate Dean Bruce Janson. PLACING FORMS THAT NEED PROCESSING IN A STUDENT’S FILE WILL DELAY THE PROCESS FOR GRADUATION APPROVAL.
  • ALL transfer credit(s) must appear on ISIS and verified/applied correctly to the students program sheet (BS) or Application for Admission to Candidacy(MS, MENG). Each department is responsible for verifying that transfer credit appears on ISIS and  is appropriately applied to degree requirements. Department Signatures indicate this function has been appropriately verified.
  • ALL Program Sheets, Application for Admission to Candidacy forms, Green Sheets (for graduate students only) and any other applicable paperwork MUST be correctly verified, approved and SIGNED by all appropriate individuals in each department. Incomplete files or files that are missing signatures or information will be returned to the departments, jeopardizing the student’s ability to graduate. Make sure to use the new green sheet for graduate students (contact Paul for a copy)
  • When you have properly assembled and verified all files are complete, please send all files to Paul, including files for students who are not approved to graduate. Paul needs ALL files, including students who are not graduating, for auditing purposes.
  • Please DO NOT deliver files as you process them. It makes it very difficult to keep track of where files are. Collect all files and deliver them all one time.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Paul at paul.rakowski@ucdenver.edu or 303-556-6771.
