Certificate Graduate Assessment Submission
After a student has successfully completed all required courses with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better and has removed all Incomplete grades from the student's record, the student can submit their Certificate Graduation Assessment for formal assessment. Courses taken in the graduation semester must be successfully completed during the semester.
The Certificate Graduation Assessment should be submitted by 11:59 PM on the following dates: Fall: November 1; Winter: March 1; Spring/Summer: June 20 or August 15. (Students who complete their coursework Spring Term and wish to graduate at the end of June must complete and submit their Certificate Graduation Assessments by June 20. Students who wish to graduate Summer Term or Spring/Summer Term must complete and submit their Certificate Graduation Assessments by August 15.)
All required elements of the Certificate Graduation Assessment must be submitted by the due date to be reviewed for that semester. If the Certificate Graduation Assessment is not submitted on time, you cannot graduate until successful completion of the Certificate Graduation Assessment requirement in a subsequent semester.
Each semester, shortly after the due dates for graduation application, graduating students are given access to a Certificate Graduation Assessment Site. The site will appear on students' Canvas Dashboard. The deadlines for graduation application are posted regularly on both the SIS and WSU websites. The student has 10-20 days, depending on the semester, after the graduation application due date to submit all the required Certificate Graduation Assessment documents through the Certificate Graduation Assessment Canvas Site. Spring/Summer and Summer graduates may have longer time. Please use the due dates mentioned above as guidance. This submission process is identical to submitting an assignment through a normal Canvas course.
After the SIS faculty has graded all of the Certificate Graduation Assessments, an email will be sent out to the student that indicates the final assessment of their Certificate Graduation Assessment and what, if any, action is required on the student's part. Students can also check Canvas for their Graduation Assessment grades.
