Degree in Absentia

Degree in Absentia

Finish Your Degree!

You are eligible to complete your degree in absentia!

  • If all of your course work is not complete, and you would like to plan out your work (to transfer courses back to Delhi to complete requirements), you need to fill out the Agreement for Completion of Degree Requirements in Absentia Form (pdf) with your academic advisor to determine which courses will make you eligible for graduation.
    • Contact information for the various academic units is listed at the bottom of this page.
  • Once you have completed the course work, you must file a Petition to Graduate. This is what alerts the Registrar's Office that you are ready to complete your degree at the end of the term.
  • More information about graduation is published at
