Graduation Checklist

During your final two semesters in the program, you will need to start thinking about graduation (both the ceremonies and taking steps to complete your degree audit). Please be sure to check your @myhunter email regularly for updates and information about participation in Graduation ceremonies and the degree audit process. ***Much of the information sent to you will be time sensitive. It is imperative that you respond promptly (by stated deadlines) in order to assure your participation and the timely completion of your degree audit. Please look for information emails around the following steps:

Completion of Degree Audit:

  • Are you applying for graduation soon? Read this document to answer commonly asked questions and to find out application timeframes (and deadlines) for when you need to apply for graduation.
  • The final step (after confirmation from Degree Audit that you have successfully registered) is to visit a Silberman advisor- who will confirm your readiness to graduate and confirm completion of degree audit requirements. Please bring a copy of your unofficial transcript for review.


Required Workshops for Graduation:

Please contact Ms. Lina Briscese at to confirm your completion of all required workshops. The list of required workshops is as follows:
