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 for Fall Semester (December) 2015 graduation is now available.  Students will have to pre-pay the graduation application fee – with a credit or debit card – when they submit their application.  Applications are due September 18.  For more details, please see the announcement within SalukiNet.

Late Summer 2015:

  • Most Summer 2015 grades should be posted, and GPA and academic standing calculated, within SalukiNet by Wednesday evening, August 12, though some off-campus (and Law) course grades will not be posted until later.
  • If you see an NR grade as one of your 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.

Looking Ahead:

  • Weeks of Welcome — August 23 to September 12
  • The Fall 2015 semester began Monday, August 24.
  • Deadline to register for full-term classes — Sunday, August 30
  • Deadline to drop a full-term class to be eligible for a credit/refund — Sunday, September 6
  • Labor Day holiday — Monday, September 7
  • Deadline to apply for December 2015 graduation — Friday, September 18
  • Family Weekend — September 25-27
  • Fall Break (no classes) — October 10-13 (University is still open)
  • Need to add a late-starting Fall class?  Consider these.
  • Fall 2015 second half classes begin Monday, October 19.

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 new 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).
