To qualify for a bachelor’s degree in an academic discipline, a student must have completed a minimum of 120 semester hours, in which the State of Florida requirements, institutional undergraduate requirements, and program requirements, must have been met. All students graduating from a state approved program must complete an electronic portfolio demonstrating mastery of the twelve accomplished practices and pass all three subtest of the Florida Teacher Certification Examination (FTCE) before graduating. Immediately prior to or at the beginning of the term in which a student expects to complete all requirements for a degree, the student should meet with his/her advisor and complete an Application for Graduation. The completed application should be submitted to the department chair, by the student, for review and processing prior to the deadline indicated by the University Registrar’s calendar.

Each application will be reviewed and appropriately signed, if approved, by the department chair and the Dean and transmitted to the Office of the University Registrar. Any application not approved will be returned to the student’s advisor for review and consultation with the affected student. If required adjustments can be made prior to the stated deadline, the application can be resubmitted for approval. After review by the University Registrar, each student will be notified of his/her graduation status.
