Applications are obtainable at the Office of the Registrar and should be returned to that office after they have been filled out and stamped by the Bursars Office showing that the non-refundable fee of $200.00 has been paid for the doctor degree. Failure to comply with this procedure may result in the postponement of the granting of the degree.
The payment of graduation fees of any kind, the listing of the student as a candidate for graduation in any document and/or invitation either to the graduation ceremonies or to any other activity related to graduation exercises shall not be interpreted as an offer to graduate nor a covenant to that effect. Only the completion of all requirements listed in the or in any other official University directive entitles a student to graduation irrespective of any representation of any kind made by any official o this University.
Candidacy for graduation will be attained by the student after the faculty has determined that the requirements for graduation have been fulfilled. Subsequently, the faculty will present the degree candidates to the President of the University and to the Board of Trustees.
Students that have completed the graduate requirements and paid the graduation fee, but interrupt their studies, have the right that their payment be considered effective for four regular semesters or two academic years from the date of the last semester in which they studied.
