All students who expect to receive their baccalaureate degree from Framingham State University are required to complete a Notice for Candidacy for Graduation. The University has four graduation dates. The form is available on line or in the Office of the Registrar and must be submitted as follows:
- September 1st for the December 31st graduation date
- October 1st for the January 31st graduation date
- February 1st for the May graduation date
- May 1st for the August 31st graduation date
No student's name may appear on the graduation list unless all financial debts to the University have been settled. Conferral of a degree occurs only when the Registrar finalizes the student's academic record and confirms that all degree requirements have been met.
