Graduation Requirements

In order to qualify for graduation in their last quarter of study at AIU, students must have a minimum CGPA of 2.0 for undergraduate programs or 3.0 for graduate programs and confirmed that all program requirements have been met.

Students must be cleared by the following departments for release of diploma:

  • Academic Affairs and/or Student Affairs Department confirm that all program requirements have been met.
  • Financial Aid and Student Accounts Departments verify all financial requirements are fulfilled.
  • Career Services Department confirms the Graduate File requirements have been completed.
  • Library and Learning Resource Center and Housing are clear of all financial obligations (if applicable)

AIU will award degrees at the end of the academic quarter only. Although students in graduate degree programs may have completed their final class before the end of the term, a student may not request a diploma any earlier than the scheduled graduation date. Diplomas will be processed pending all graduation requirements are cleared. Complete information regarding graduation activities can be found in the Student Handbook.

Graduating under earlier catalogs

Any student may graduate under the graduation requirements in effect at the time of graduation.  The institution policy on use of earlier graduation requirements also provides that if fewer than ten years have elapsed since a student’s admission into the program, she or he may choose to graduate under the program requirements in effect at the time of admission, or under any subsequent requirements.
