    1. Apply for graduation on Studentadmin


    • You may still make class schedule changes after you submit this.

    • This simply tells the Registrar’s Office you plan to graduate and when (Spring or Summer) so they know to audit you and clear you for graduation and include you in the printed materials for commencement (ie: Commencement program).

    • If you already applied to graduate but need to change it to a different term, please contact the Registrar’s Office for assistance: 860-486-3331.



    • Log on to Studentadmin -> Self Service -> Student Center -> My Academics -> Apply for Graduation

    • Confirm your address in the system where your diploma will be mailed.


    1. Check Your Academic Requirements (degree audit) in Studentadmin to make sure you are not missing any requirements. 

    • The Registrar’s Office uses THIS to audit you for graduation.

    • This reflects anything you have completed, currently taking, and registered for.

    • If any blue bars are “OPEN” or highlighted in green on the PDF version, you have not registered for the requirement course and cannot graduate until you do so.

      • See instructions below for exceptions.

    • If you change anything on your schedule, this report will instantly update. Check this report again to ensure you are still meeting any remaining requirements.

    • The Add deadline for Spring 2019 is February 4, 2019.

    • If you are graduating and need help enrolling in courses to finish your requirements, please make an appointment with us: so we can assist you.


    • Log on to Studentadmin -> Self Service -> Student Center -> My Academics -> View my advisement report

    • Your first box will be “OPEN” listing your catalog year. This determines your set of requirements. It is the academic year you first became a CLAS student. You can ignore this.

    • Your “relateds courses” box will be “OPEN” or Green if you took anything not listed on the pre-approved relateds list If it was approved by us, you can list them when you submit your final plan of study (next section).

    • Relateds can be a completed minor, double major, any four courses from the ECON Relateds website list, or approved courses by an ECON advisor.  

    • Some areas that are “OPEN” or highlighted in green may be disclaimers that always remain open (ie: your catalog year at the top, business minors fine print, etc). Read it carefully and check with your advisor if you are unsure.

    • All other boxes should be “CLOSED” or “COLLAPSED” blue bars with side arrows, or NO GREEN highlighting on the PDF version. If any other box is open or green, you have not yet registered for that requirement and will not graduate until you do so.
