University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Policy Name: Graduation Application
Policy Number: LR 514.19
Effective Date: April 1, 2010 (review date)
Students must apply no later than the end of the sixth week of the fall or spring terms to be considered for graduation for that term. To be considered for summer graduation, students must apply by the end of the second week of Summer II (see the UA Little Rock Registration Guide for exact dates). Application submission by the deadline will normally assure a graduation confirmation decision at the end of the designated semester. Applications received after the deadline may not be processed prior to the conferral date. If the student does not meet the original expected term graduation date, he or she must reapply.
To be included in the Fall or Spring Commencement Program, all fall or spring applicants must submit their application online by the date published in the UA Little Rock Registration Guide and Class Schedule for the semester. Program printing deadlines will not enable the university to include the names of students submitting applications after the deadline. Please refer to the UA Little Rock Registration Guide and Class Schedule for more information.
Students will normally receive their diplomas within six weeks of the fall or spring conferral dates assuming the deadline is met. Summer graduates must submit their applications by the end of the second week of Summer 2 to ensure a September diploma delivery. Undergraduate students are not charged a graduation fee.
In order to be awarded a degree in the term of graduation, a student must complete all requirements and obligations no later than the date grades are due as listed in the “Academic Calendar” section of this catalog. This includes but is not limited to grades of I, MG, and IP.
Students failing to meet this deadline must reapply for graduation and will be awarded their UA Little Rock degree the following term, provided all requirements have been met.
The application for graduation is completed by going to the secure portion of BOSS. Go to http://boss.ualr.edu/ and log in. Once you log in select “Student Services and Financial Aid” and select “Student Request Menu” to complete the online application.
