Information For Degree Applicants
Final Degree Audit
Final degree audits are performed after all grades for the final semester are processed and sufficient time has passed for all other records such as academic forgiveness, grade changes, course substitutions, incomplete forms, official transcripts from other schools, capstone experiences, tests scores, etc., to be entered. All paperwork must be received in the Office of the Registrar no later than two weeks following the close of the semester in order for you to remain on the roster of graduating students for that term. Transcripts from other schools must be mailed directly to NSU. The actual date for this final deadline will be published in the commencement instructions each semester. If you have met all degree requirements, the degree will be conferred and posted to your transcript. You can check to see if your degree has been conferred by looking at your advising transcript via goNSU. If the conferral date field is populated, your degree has been conferred.
Diplomas are mailed approximately three months following the date of degree conferral. Diplomas will be mailed to the address on your graduation application. Any change of address for diplomas must be sent to the Degree Auditor via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have not received your diploma 12 weeks after the end of the semester for which you applied for graduation, first check your online transcript to make sure your degree was conferred. If your transcript shows a conferral date, check to make sure you do not have any holds on your account as your diploma will not be mailed if you have holds. If your degree has been conferred and you do not have a hold, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 918-444-2208 or email@example.com.
