Students may track their degree requirements at their online WebAdvisor account, using the link for Academic Evaluation Report. The report will indicate completed status once all requirements are satisfied. The Academic Evaluation Report is also used by the Graduation Review Committee. This committee is comprised of faculty representatives from each school, and it convenes in January, May and October. The committee reviews the record of each student; and once the committee has verified that the requirements have been met, Quinnipiac will mail diplomas to each student's permanent address.
Degrees are awarded three times per year: January, May and October. Each time, the Graduation Review Committee will meet to verify that degree requirements have been met. Once approved, a student's degree information will be updated on his or her record and the diploma will be mailed according to the following timetable:
January graduates: Diplomas mailed early February
May graduates: Diplomas mailed early June
October graduates: Diplomas mailed mid-October
