All graduating seniors are required to complete the Psychology Department Senior Survey before they initiate their Degree Audit Worksheet with their academic advisor (Step 3). The online survey will be sent to your Catmail during your final semester. This online survey will take around 10-20 minutes to complete. Once you start the survey, you must complete it. If you try to stop, it will timeout and you will not be able to log back into finish it.

After you submit your graduation application and complete the Senior Survey, please contact your Academic Advisor to initiate your Degree Audit Worksheet (DAW). The DAW is a form that your academic advisor submits to Graduation Services, which confirms that you are expected to meet all degree requirements during your intended graduation term. We recommend contacting your advisor after you have enrolled in your final classes. You can contact your advisor through email or by scheduling an appointment in Trellis.

Graduation and Convocation

Psychology graduates are invited to attend the College of Science Convocation Ceremony, held every May and December. You will receive an invitation for the ceremony to your Catmail during your final semester. Students graduating over summer are invited to walk in the May ceremony, and are automatically included in the graduation invite.
