FALL 2012 Graduation Dates/Deadlines and Instructions

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

  • Saturday, December 15, 2012 – End of Semester. Commencement Ceremonies held 9:00am at the Denver Convention Center.
  • Thursday, December 20, 2012 – ALL GRADES DUE BY ALL FACULTY who are teaching courses in the FALL 2012 semester.
  • Thursday, December 20, 2012 – ALL IP/I GRADES MUST BE CHANGED AND SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE OF RECORDS AND REGISTRATION FOR ALL INCOMPLETE/IN PROGRESS COURSES ON STUDENT TRANSCRIPTS. GRADE CHANGES ARE ONLY ACCEPTED THROUGH THE PROPER COMPLETION AND SUBMISSION OF A “CHANGE OF RECORD FORM.”
  • Monday, December 24, 2012 – 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 which may prevent a student being approved for graduation.
  • Monday, December 24, 2012 – Tuesday, January 8, 2013 – 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.
  • Wednesday, January 9, 2013 – ALL COMPLETED FALL 2012 GRADUATING STUDENT FILES TO ME FOR FINAL REVIEW.
  • Wednesday, January 9, 2013 – Departments responsible for notifying/advising ALL student(s) who have been denied FALL 2012 graduation. THIS IS AN ADVISING FUNCTION AND IS NOT PERFORMED IN THE DEAN’S OFFICE.
  • Thursday, January 31, 2013 – Degrees posted on official student transcripts. Official transcripts showing degrees posted available to students.
  • Friday, September 22, 2013 – Diplomas mailed to students. (Diplomas mailed to addresses on ISIS and provided by students.)

Directions for FALL 2012 GRADUATION files are below:

  • ALL STUDENT FILES MUST CONTAIN THE MOST CURRENT  (FALL 2102) TRANSCRIPT which indicates ALL grades including FALL 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), in progress (IP) grades MUST have a letter grade on the transcript for ALL semesters including FALL 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 processing 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. USE THE ATTACHED GREEN SHEET FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS. DO NOT USE OLD GREEN SHEETS.
  • When you have properly assembled and verified all files are complete, PLEASE SEND ALL FILES TO PAUL INCLUDING FILES OF 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 to me as you process them. It makes it very difficult to keep track of where files are. Collect all files and deliver all of them to me at one time.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Paul Rakowski.
