All requirements must be completed in order for a student to receive a degree or a certificate. Students should refer to the online catalog for a complete listing of degree/certificate requirements. Degrees/certificates are awarded three times per year, at the end of the spring, summer, and fall semesters.
Students planning to earn a degree must indicate their intent to graduate to the Office of Records and Registration.
University of Illinois at Springfield students can view their degree audit report through DARSweb for Students. This report is an unofficial audit of degree progress and includes all completed courses, as well as those currently in progress.
The self-generated web audit does NOT take the place of regular academic advising sessions. It should NOT be used to make decisions about future course selections, but should instead be used as a tool for degree planning.
A commencement ceremony is held each spring for graduates who received their degrees in the previous summer and fall semesters, and for degree candidates for the current spring semester.
