Dear IC students,

It’s time to begin thinking about finalizing all of your plans for next semester to ensure that you graduate on time.  One item you want to take care of before winter break is to apply for your degree.  

Applying for your degree ensures that the Office of the Registrar has you listed for the correct graduation date and knows how you would like your name to appear in the Commencement program and on your diploma.

You can find the application on the Office of the Registrar website at the following link:

For those of you planning to graduate in May 2011, your application for degree is due by November 19.

Thank you.

Kristyn Lingenfelter
Assistant Registrar for Student Services
