Apply for Graduation

Graduate Certificate – Computer Science Teacher Endorsement – applying for graduation:

  • Submit a “Proposed Plan of Study for a Graduate Certificate” (PPSGC) form to the program coordinator (Amit Jain).  This form is similar to the Application for Admission to Candidacy but for graduate certificates.
    • After the form is complete and signed, the form is submitted to the Graduate College by the program coordinator
    • Once the form is approved, the graduate college will send the student and registrar an email indicating it was approved then student can apply for graduation
    • Time of Submission: The student should submit the PPSGC form prior to the graduation application deadline.
  • Here is the link to the PPSGC form


Masters of Arts in Education Curriculum & Instruction or MS in STEM Education with Computer Science Emphasis – applying for graduation:

NOTE:  Students in the Masters program should also apply for the Graduate Certificate as they have earned both.  The graduate certificate lists the CS Teacher Endorsement.  If you were admitted directly into the Masters program, you will need to apply for the Graduate Certificate: Computer Science Teacher Endorsement in the Hobson’s system to obtain the Graduate Certificate as well as the Masters.  Important: Please be sure to apply for the Graduate Certificate program before you apply for graduation in the masters program.
