Students intending to graduate must start a graduation contract. The student initiates this process. The contract declares intent to graduate on a certain date and allows the Registrar’s Office to collect the necessary graduation information from the student. It also provides a method to specify exactly what coursework will be required of the student during his/her final year/semester. Once completed and signed, this form is a contract between the student, his/her advisor, and the Registrar’s Office.
Note: This contract must be finalized by the end of the Fall semester before the Spring ceremony, or a late fee of $75 will be charged before contract finalization.
The Graduation contract is a 4-STEP process:
The Master’s University grants bachelor’s degrees (i.e., Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music, and Bachelor of Science) to students who satisfy the graduation requirements described below:
Please note that degree requirements within each major are determined by the departmental faculty. Many majors feature a variety of emphases that may have different unit requirements for graduation. Progress toward fulfillment of these major requirements is monitored by departmental faculty and by the Registrar through graduation contracts.
Students are held to the unit requirements within general education and their major/emphasis according to the Academic Catalog under which they initially enter The Master’s University. This applies, as well, to those students whose continuous enrollment is interrupted and then return to the university.
Granted at graduation to students who have completed at least 60 semester units at The Master’s University and have attained the following cumulative grade point average:
Commencement vs. Graduation
The Commencement Ceremony is the celebration of your hard work towards graduation. Graduation, the official awarding of your degree, will occur when all your degree requirements are met.
Commencement ceremonies are held once a year with the conclusion of the spring semester in May. Students who finish their degree in the fall semester will receive their degree immediately and are invited to walk in commencement exercises the following May.
Visit Commencement Exercises for all information about the day’s events, including location, live streaming, vendors, and information for guests.
Grades are due a week after the semester ends. Four to six weeks after grades are posted, your degree will be posted by the Registrar. A week or two after your degree is posted, you will receive your diploma in the mail. If your address has changed, you must contact so that your diploma arrives at the correct location.
