Just a note to all students who are in the final stages of their MET or certificate programs this spring: the Graduate College has now resumed processing a backlog of Applications for Admission to Candidacy (AAC) and Proposed Plans of Study (PPS). If you submitted your documents prior to the deadline of October 7, 2016, this does NOT apply to you. All other students who submitted documents after the deadline, once you receive the email notification from the Graduate College regarding approval of your documents, there is a choice to make:
1) Since the next step is to Apply for Graduation, you can either apply for graduation in May 2017 and pay a late fee of double the diploma fee (to $50) or certificate fee (to $40) or,
2) You may Apply for Graduation in August 2017 (being sure to do so before the deadline of June 1, 2017) and pay only the normal diploma fee of $25 for the diploma and/or the certificate fee of $20.
