  Newark Undergraduate Catalog 2006-2008 Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark Academic Policies and Procedures Graduation  


Degrees are conferred by the university upon recommendation of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences-Newark and the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark. Degrees are conferred and diplomas issued at the annual commencement each May. A student who completes degree requirements in October or January may request a diploma in December or April, respectively. October and January diplomas may be picked up at the Office of the Registrar.

Diplomas are withheld if a student has a hold against his or her record.

It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that all the graduation requirements of the college, including certification of the major, have been fully met well before the expected date of graduation. Student records are officially closed upon graduation. A graduate cannot improve his or her cumulative grade-point average by completing work or taking additional courses after the degree has been conferred. Inquiries concerning graduation may be directed to an academic adviser at the Office of the Associate Dean, Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark, Room 101, Engelhard Hall.

Diploma application forms must be completed and filed in the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, Hill Hall, by candidates for graduation as follows:

Degree Granted
Application Deadline
August 3
October 19
January 22

Unless the application is filed by the appropriate date, the degree is not conferred and graduation is delayed.

Requests to have degrees granted in absentia should be sent to the registrar as early as possible, and should indicate the address to which the diploma should be mailed in June. The student should also notify the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, Hill Hall, of the request to be graduated in absentia.
