Students must complete the prescribed course of study, meeting program academic, professional, and technical standards requirements, which may exceed the requirements stated above. Program professional standards consist of ethics and proper health care practices to which students must adhere. Program faculty will distribute these standards when appropriate.

The student is responsible for submitting an intent-to-graduate form by no later than January in the year that they intend to graduate.  The Health Professions Programs Administrative Office will contact each potential graduate regarding this issue.

Work for a degree must be completed within five years from the time the student first enrolls in the professional program. Under unusual circumstances, the program director may recommend granting a waiver of this requirement.

Degrees are granted during the academic year in December, May, June, and August; however, Commencement exercises are held only in May.
