Degrees are awarded after the appropriate representatives from the colleges and schools have reviewed the student records and notified the Office of the Registrar that students are cleared to graduate. This process follows the submission of final grades and the graduation ceremony. Students should allow approximately one week after grades are due before anticipating a change in their graduation status viewed in myState. Transcripts will be available ONLY after degree audit is completed. Diplomas will be mailed approximately one month after the graduation date.
All transfer work must be received in the Office of the Registrar at the time that MSU grades are due. Failure to follow these deadlines will result in at least a semester’s delay in graduation. Any transfer courses completed within the last 32 hours of a degree must receive prior approval from the student’s dean.
