Filing the Petition for Degree Completion form will initiate the degree auditing and, if merited, degree conferral procedures. Once the form is completed and submitted, the petitioner will receive an e-mail to their PO student email account. This will serve as confirmation that the petition has been received in the Office of the Registrar. Students who fail to complete their degree requirements by the end of the semester/session they indicated are required to file a new petition with an updated semester/session of degree completion.  PETITION FOR DEGREE CONFERRAL IS NOT THE SAME AS RSVP FOR THE ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT.  YOU MUST SUBMIT YOUR RSVP FOR THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY AS A SEPARATE STEP.
