All students who have completed the Candidate for Program Completion Form have been enrolled in a mock CALP class that you see on your schedule (CALP-DEC, CALP-MAY, CALP-AUG)

Preliminary graduation check notification emails starting at the end of January and through early March

The degree checks will confirm if you are in the process of completing your final requirements this Spring, or if you will still have requirements outstanding after this semester. The email will also let you know if you are eligible to participate in Commencement ceremonies.



  • Final degree checks will begin right after the ceremonies for May candidates. Yes or No graduation letters will be sent by late June.
