The following is a checklist for students to follow in preparation for graduating from the Missouri University of Science and Technology.

Deadline for Application
The student must submit to the Registrar's Office a completed application for graduation form within the first four weeks of his/her graduating semester.  This can be done through Joe'SS.

Final Caps Report
After the fifth or sixth week of classes, undergraduate students will receive a preliminary degree check with an analysis mailed to their local address. This analysis will consist of a CAPS report and a cover letter stating any discrepancies or if all the requirements have been met with in-progress course work. CAPS reports may be obtained at any time from Joe'SS. NOTE: It is the student's responsibility to make sure all discrepancies have been resolved before commencement.

Name and Address Check
Students can verify their degree name and address on Joe’SS (Self Service > Student Center > Personal Information). Please inform the Registrar’s Office of any discrepancies (registrar@mst.edu; 573-341-4181; Diploma Address Change form).
