For students with majors in the College of Arts and Sciences, the process for filing
an intent or application to graduate form and obtaining a "Summary of Coursework Remaining"
is as follows:
Back to Undergraduate Links
- College of Arts and Sciences majors must file an application to graduate at least one year before the beginning of their expected graduation semester. Students file intent to graduate in MyMemphis on the MyDegree tab by following the
steps in the Commencement a& Graduation Channel.
- After the student files intent, the Graduation Analyst will complete a "Summary of
Coursework Remaining" worksheet.
- A copy of the student's "Summary of Coursework Remaining" will be e-mailed to the advisor and to the student several months after the filing date.
- Students must print out a copy of the summary and meet with their academic advisors to review it. If you have questions about the information on the summary, your advisor
should call or e-mail the graduation analyst for clarification so that all concerned
with have the correct information.
- Students will not be placed on the graduation list until this summary has been signed (by both student and advisor), dated, and then
brought to 107 Scates Hall.
- Graduation Filing Deadlines: These are the University's filing deadlines. Because of the large number of Arts
and Sciences undergraduates, our students must file at least one year before the beginning
of their expected graduation semester (for example, in January 2012 for May 2013).
Filing in the last few months prior to the University's deadline for a specific semester
results in not receiving information about courses remaining until after the expected
graduation semester begins.
An e-mail notification will be sent to all undergraduates to indicate the ideal time
to file for a specific semester.

Membrane research may reach far
Pinkhassik and a team of graduate students and post-doctoral students are working to devise a process for creating thin manmade membranes. The very science is intriguing enough, but the potential applications and benefits of such a membrane are astounding to contemplate. "We believe our membrane can improve existing processes and be adapted to new uses, making theoretical applications become reality."
