Apply for Graduation
In order to graduate, you must complete two forms -- one for the Department and one for the University. The Department form is the College of Engineering Graduation Checklist. The University form is your application for your diploma and there will be a link in your OASIS account for this form. The link is usually active one semester before graduation.
Continuity of Advising in the presence of Coronavirus
Please see the Undergraduate main page for information on advising continuity including modification to the graduation application process (aka "graduation checkout"). Please note that all walk in hours are now switched to remote delivery (no face-to-face advising). Advising will be by appointment for the majority of cases with telephone or email advising for urgent cases that cannot be scheduled. For telephone or email access: John Morgan.
For all majors
You must complete the College of Engineering Graduation Checklist before the Departmental graduation deadline for your graduation semester. Email the completed checklist to Mayra Morfin for review and a permit for CIS 4250 (CS & CpE), CIS 4253 (IT), and CIS 4935 (IT and CyS). See the Undergraduate main page for instructions on scheduling a graduation checkout review meeting (online) with Mayra. Following this review meeting, permits are granted.
The Departmental 2020 graduation deadlines are: October 30th, 2020 for Spring 2021 or Summer 2021 graduation. Failure to meet this deadline can jeopardize your graduation date.
At the end of your graduating semester, assuming you have met your responsibilities outlined above, you will receive a link to a required Exit Survey from the Department.
Students completing a dual major, but only receiving one degree must complete a second major form and submit it with their graduation form. Students expecting to earn two degrees must complete one set of forms for each degree (that is, two sets of forms).
There are two different ceremonies that graduating students can participate in, USF Commencement and the College of Engineering Induction to the Profession Ceremony.
The Induction to the Profession Ceremony entails a rite-of-passage ceremony for graduates from engineering and computing programs with The Order of the Engineer (CpE majors) and The Pledge of the Computing Professional (CS, CyS, & IT majors). The Induction Ceremony is held each spring and fall and is usually the Friday of commencement weekend. Invitations to students will be emailed in early-March to those who have applied to graduate in spring, and in early-October to those who have applied to graduate in fall. Summer graduates can contact their advisor about participation.
Computer Science and Computer Engineering
Once you have completed the College of Engineering Graduation Checklist, you are strongly encouraged to meet with the Computer Science and Computer Engineering Program Coordinator (Dr. Hendrix) for career advising.
