Steps to initiate the award of your degree for graduation
- Submit a request for your Master of Nursing degree during the quarter in which you wish to graduate. Select the "non-thesis" option. Submission of the request is a student responsibility and must be submitted between the first and last day of the quarter. Failure to complete the online request as stated will result in the requirement to register for coursework the next quarter, ultimately postponing the completion of your degree and incurring more tuition expense*. It is recommended to submit the request upon the start of your final quarter.
- All requirements for the degree must be met by the end of the current quarter fro the request to be approved. You will be is notified of deficiencies by the Graduate School.
- The degree Warrant is issued by the Graduate School to the program.
- The Graduate Program Advisor will provide the form to you, your Scholarly Chair and reader for signatures at the final exam (MN Sympositum).
*The Graduate School requires that you maintain registration as a full-time, three-quarter time or part-time graduate student for the quarter the degree is to be conferred.
