It is the responsibility of each prospective graduate to discharge all academic and financial obligations to the university and to request a final review and certification of his or her academic record by the faculty of the college preparatory to graduation. Degree candidates do so by following the procedure outlined in the following list:
1. Ascertain whether all degree requirements have been satisfied;
2. Complete the Diploma Application (available in the Office of Academic Advising or at http://advising.camden.rutgers.edu under "Seniors" ); and
3. Submit the Diploma Application and preapproved Degree Navigator reports for general education and major requirements to the Office of Academic Advising.
Approved departmental candidates are presented to the Faculty Senate for final certification. Students having problems in meeting graduation requirements are notified by the Office of Academic Advising. Degree candidates seeking a minor must file for minor field certification along with the Diploma Application.
Candidates must file for degree certification in accordance with the following dates: August 1, for those qualifying for an October-dated diploma; October 1, for a January-dated diploma; and February 15, for a May/June-dated diploma.
Failure to meet one of the above dates requires the resubmission of the Diploma Application in the next period. The faculty will not act to certify a degree candidacy unless the prospective graduate has filed a Diploma Application.
