Students must complete and submit to the Office of the Registrar the Petition to Graduate form with the $50.00 fee by the established deadlines as received from the Office of the Registrar. The Office of the Registrar may send notices to students who have completed within 6 graduate credits towards their program requirements; however, it is the student's responsibility to review the deadlines and request and submit the Petition to Graduate form by the established deadlines. Students may submit their petition to graduate within 6 credits of completing their programs OR the student must submit petition after completing all required credits for the program. If a student petitions the Office of the Registrar but does not complete the degree requirements on schedule, the student must submit a new petition indicating a new completion date.

A graduate student may submit for graduation under the following conditions:

  • All academic and non-academic requirements have been met.
  • Student will complete all requirements by the deadline for submission.
  • Student will be within 6 credits of completing program by the deadline for submission.

Participation in a ceremony does not guarantee a degree. Students must meet academic requirements before a degree can be conferred.

The University anticipates graduation ceremonies to be in the spring and fall semester. The actual date and time will be announced. It is Nexus University’s policy that only those students who have fulfilled all academic and non-academic obligations to the University may participate in commencement. Diplomas will be mailed to the student within 6 weeks after graduation.
