  Newark Undergraduate Catalog 2022-2024 Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark Rutgers Business School Academic Policies and Procedures Graduation  


Degrees are conferred by the university upon recommendation of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences-Newark and Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark. Degrees are conferred three times a year: January, May, and August.

Diplomas and official transcripts 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 school, 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 their 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 advisor at the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark Program Office

All students must submit a Graduation Application via the Online Diploma Application in order to have their record formally reviewed and have their degree conferred:

Requests to have degrees granted in absentia should be sent to the Office of the Registrar as early as possible, and should indicate the address to which the diploma should be mailed. All diplomas are being mailed, meaning mailing address for all applications need to be accurate.
