Revised Definition for Graduation Date


During a recent policy review, the CoARC and NBRC approved a revision to the graduate date definition.

       Current Definition: The graduation date reported must be the date of degree conferral as posted by the registrar on the student’s transcript.

       Revised Definition:

       The graduation date is the date on which the degree was conferred by the program's educational sponsor, not the date on which the student fulfilled all program requirements.
