Graduate Program Graduation

Master’s Graduation & Certificate Completion for Graduate Students

Please select your academic program below.

To be considered a candidate for the completion of a graduate degree, or graduate certificate, you must complete all necessary paperwork as well as the Application for Completion of Degrees, Certificates and Minors by the posted deadlines. Late submissions will be processed in the order received AFTER all submissions made by the deadline are finalized. Failure to meet the deadlines will result in the delay or postponement of your graduation. 

The execMBA program hosts its graduation ceremony earlier than other Mizzou graduation ceremonies. For more information, please contact Barb Peterson.

A Graduate Certificate Plan of Study form must be submitted to the Graduate School at least one term before the conferral of the certificate. If completing a Certificate with a master’s degree, you will need to apply for completion of both programs. Graduate certificates may appear on students’ transcripts but do not appear on diplomas. For certificate only students, you will not attend a commencement ceremony.
