Application Verification

GRADUATION APPLICATION VERIFICATION


At the beginning of each semester, the Graduate School will send graduation verification e-mails to those students that have applied to graduate. This e-mail will include the information that we have in the system concerning your degree, diploma name, and diploma mailing address. Please review the information in the e-mail and on this webpage carefully.

If you are planning to graduate and have not received a verification e-mail, check:

  • That you have completed a graduation application in SeaNet. You should be able to view your submitted graduation application information.
  • With the Graduate School to see if we have a graduation application on file.
