Candidates for Degrees

In order to graduate, a student must satisfy the degree requirements listed in the catalog at the time the student began matriculation at College of Saint Mary if the student has maintained continuous registration. The student should meet with her/his academic advisor and verify satisfactory completion of degree requirements for bachelor and associate degrees as outlined in the Academic Catalog. If the student has had more than a one-year interruption in attendance at College of Saint Mary, then he/she will fulfill the requirements in effect at the time of his/her re-admittance to the University. Although the academic advisor will assist the student with planning, final responsibility for meeting degree requirements lies with the student.

File an application for degree no later than April 1 for December graduation or September 1 for May or Summer graduation. The same date holds for students applying for certificates. Forms are available electronically under Forms on MyCSM.

All financial, library, and other university accounts must be settled before the diploma or transcript is released.
