Need to Know
If you applied for spring 2010 graduation but will not be completing all requirements for your graduate degree by May 7, 2010, please contact the Graduate College in order to have your Application for Graduation moved to either summer or fall 2010. You may contact Lucinda Topham at Lucinda.Topham@nau.edu or (928) 523-9636.
Note that graduation applications will be moved forward one time only. If the requirements are still not completed, the application will be withdrawn from the system, purged, and a new Application for Graduation packet will need to be submitted.

Official policy changes approved by the University Graduate Committee in 2009-10:
Graduate students are invited to become fans of the Graduate College on Facebook. We post national articles exploring provocative issues in higher education such as research ethics, how to keep up with new books in your discipline, helpful advice on college teaching, the state of the academic job market, and how to stand out when you interview. We also search out and request notice of articles featuring our grad students, announcements of opportunities and events, and pertinent NAU and Arizona news.
Faculty, staff, and graduate students: want to write an article for the newsletter sharing advice or an experience? Want us to have a campus expert address a particular topic?
Please contact us, and we'll make it happen!
