Completing Your Last Semester at Puget Sound

Don't forget the details! Tie up those loose ends and have a smooth and stress-free final semester.

Degree requirements and diplomas
You may participate in the Commencement Ceremony even if you will complete your final courses or requirements at a later date. Any incomplete or in-progress grade in a course must first be submitted before you can be awarded a degree. Contact Degree Evaluator Melanie Sullivan in the Office of the Registrar at 253.879.2595 or by email to arrange the appropriate degree date. Bachelor’s degree candidates are advised to review the degree requirements in the Bulletin. Note that the first degree requirement is to earn at least 32 units. Your diploma will be mailed to you eight to 12 weeks after the final term of work has been completed successfully. The diploma will be mailed to each graduate’s home address, unless you provide a change of address to the degree evaluator. All official “holds” must be removed before your diploma will mail. 

Loan exit counseling sessions              
Did you borrow a Federal Direct (Stafford) Loan or a Federal Perkins Loan as part of your financial aid package at Puget Sound? Each requires you to complete an online loan exit counseling session. Watch your email for more information, or visit

Returning library materials
Please return all library materials to Collins Memorial Library and pay outstanding fines by Noon on Friday, May 15. Any financial hold on your account will delay the release of your transcript and diploma.
