Take 15 credits per semester
to finish college on time


Take 15 credits per semester to make your college education more affordable.


Take 15 credits per semester to enter the workforce faster.


Graduating on time puts you in a position to begin making money sooner.


Graduating on time means you are in the workforce longer and your lifetime earnings will be higher.


Graduating on time leads to more options in your life, including pursuing a graduate degree, taking time off to travel, or to do volunteer work.


Take control of your education. Working with your advisor will keep you on track to graduate on time.


If you take less than 15 hours per semester, enroll in summer session to stay on schedule to graduate in four years.


Research shows that the longer one is in college, the less likely the student is to complete a degree.

Important Academic Reminders:

Right Now:

  • The online graduation application is available for Summer (August) 2016 and Fall (December) 2016 graduations.  Students will have to pre-pay the graduation application fee – with a credit or debit card – when they submit their application.  More info about the process is here.
  • Remember that past-due balances of more than $200 will result in you getting a "Bursar Reg" hold.  Having such a hold will prevent registration.
  • Newly-admitted students can now contract online with University Housing.  You may have to wait a day after you have been admitted and have gotten your Network ID before you will be able to successfully log into Housing's system.

Late Spring 2016 / Early Summer 2016:

  • Registration for late-starting Summer 2016 classes and for Fall 2016 classes continues.
  • If you see an NR ("not recorded") grade as one of your final grades, that means that the instructor did not submit your grade by the deadline and will have to submit it later.  Such late grade submissions will also result in a recalculation of your GPA and your academic standing.
  • Students up for Spring graduation, you now can monitor the status of your graduation application – to see if your degree has been awarded and if your diploma has been mailed – in a new channel within SalukiNet.  There are two announcements in SalukiNet with more details.
  • The 8 week main Summer Session began Monday, June 13.  A list of late-starting on-campus classes (most starting on Monday, July 11) is here.
  • Deadline to apply for August 2016 graduation — Friday, June 24 (for more details, look here)
  • Independence Day holiday — Monday, July 4

Looking Ahead:

  • Online grade submission for full-term Summer 2016 courses begins Monday, August 1.
  • Summer 2015 final exams — August 4 and 5
  • Grade changes for graduate student INC grades from Summer 2015 must be submitted by Friday, August 5 to avoid having the INC grade automatically changed to an F grade.
  • Summer 2016 grades (for courses ending by August 7) are due from instructors by Wednesday, August 10 at 8:00 AM.
  • The Fall 2016 semester begins Monday, August 22.
  • Labor Day holiday — Monday, September 5
  • Deadline to apply for December 2016 graduation — Friday, September 16

What We Do:

The Registrar's Office provides administrative services and academic support to currently enrolled students and the campus community, as well as to prospective and former students.  We are located in room 0251 of the Student Services Building.

The primary goals of the Registrar's Office are to assist students in the registration process, assess tuition and fees, monitor students' academic progress, and determine eligibility for degree.  The Registrar's Office also provides many specialized services for students such as transcript distribution, enrollment verification, and withdrawal.

For the academic units, the Registrar's Office oversees all general classroom space assignments, coordinates faculty and staff access to the Banner Student Information System, and identifies the students to be recognized for University-wide high scholastic achievement (such as Deans List and Honors Day).
