Degrees Awarded Posthumously

Upon request, the University may award a degree posthumously. Any such request requires the following for consideration:

  1. The parent, legal guardian, partner, relative or legal equivalent must provide a written request to the University Registrar.
  2. The student must have been enrolled and in good disciplinary and academic standing at the time of passing.
  3. The student must have completed at least 90% of degree requirements.
  4. The Chair of the major department must provide a letter of recommendation in support of the request.

The appropriate Vice Provost will have final authority for the approval and awarding of a posthumous degree.
