Degrees Awarded Posthumously
Upon request, the University may award a degree posthumously. Any such request requires the following for consideration:
- The parent, legal guardian, partner, relative or legal equivalent must provide a written request to the University Registrar.
- The student must have been enrolled and in good disciplinary and academic standing at the time of passing.
- The student must have completed at least 90% of degree requirements.
- 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.
