Undergraduate Degree Request & Commencement Participation Notification: This form is filed to indicate to Plymouth State University when you are intending to complete your degree and when you will be participating in commencement ceremonies. Plymouth State University graduates students three times per year-December, May and August. The deadlines for submitting the Degree Request are as follows: Students completing their degree in May or August must file their degree request no later than December 1. Students completing their degree in December must file their degree request no later than October 1. The form may be obtained in the Registrar’s Office in Speare Building 205, or online.
Degree Requests will be accepted up to one month beyond the deadline; however, there will be a $50.00 Late Fee. Degree Requests received after this time will be interpreted as requests for graduation in the subsequent year.
