Application for Graduation

  • Two semesters before their projected graduation date, students are required to fill out a MFT Graduation Checklist (500 Hours) or 600 Hours and an Application for Degree.
  • The completed MFT Graduation Checklist (500 Hours) or 600 Hours is compared to the published list of graduation requirements. Students cannot graduate until all requirements have been met.
  • This Graduation Checklist is filed with the Registrar two semesters before the projected graduation date and then updated by the student and the academic advisor as unmet graduation requirements are completed over the remaining semesters.
  • Steps to the Application for Graduation Process:
    • Obtain a Graduation Packet from the Registrar's office.
    • Fill out the Graduation Packet.
    • Download and fill out the MFT Graduation Checklist.
    • Bring the Application for Degree and MFT Graduation Checklist forms to your advisor to be completed and signed.
    • Note: It takes a great deal of time to review, complete, and sign your forms. Submit these to the MFT Program Director as early as possible. You will be contacted when they are ready for you to pick up.
    • Make yourself a copy of all forms.
    • Take completed and signed forms to the Bursary, pay the $25 graduation fee, and get a receipt.
    • Take all forms and the receipt from the Bursary to the Registrar's Office.
  • Several items on your MFT Graduation Checklist will not be complete at the time you first submit the forms to the Registrar. Submit the form to the registrar anyway, and submit it as soon as possible.
  • Request the MFT Program Director or the Director of Clinical Training to sign off on each remaining requirement as you complete it, and take an updated copy to the registrar.
  • It is your responsibility to update the Graduation Checklist each time you complete another requirement. The registrar will not allow anyone with an incomplete MFT Graduation Checklist to graduate.
  • Do not delay. As graduation grows closer, the registrar's office becomes busier and busier. If your materials have not been processed because they are incomplete, you may not be able to graduate in a timely manner.
