To be considered eligible for graduation, all students must fulfill the following requirements.
Full-time MBA Candidates
All MBA and MS students planning to graduate must file an Application for Degree Form with the Office of Records and Registration. Ph.D. candidates should file their application with the Doctoral Office.
Langone Part-time MBA Candidates
Langone Part-time MBA Candidates who wish to have their employers notified of their graduation should file an Employer Notification of Graduation Request Form with the Office of Records and Registration along with their Application for Degree Form.
All MBA degree candidates must satisfy the Business Writing Proficiency requirement in order to qualify for graduation.
All degree and certificate candidates must maintain continuous matriculation during their entire program. This is normally done by completing relevant course work during each Fall and Spring semester. Students in good standing who are making satisfactory progress towards completion of their program but must be away for a Fall and/or Spring semester must request a Leave of Absence and maintain matriculation by paying a fee. Ph.D. candidates must receive approval from the Doctoral Office in order to maintain matriculation by fee.
Also, students permitted to complete a portion of their program at another accredited university must pay the matriculation fee for each Fall and/or Spring semester they are away from Stern.
All courses with incomplete grades (IP or IF) must be completed in order for a degree candidate to be eligible for graduation. For students graduating in May, all courses with incomplete grades must be completed and graded by the first Friday of May. For students graduating in January or September, all courses with incomplete grades must be completed and graded by the third Monday of the month in which they filed to graduate (ie: January or September).
Incompletes not made up by this deadline will lapse to N in the case of an IP (Incomplete Passing) and F in the case of an IF (Incomplete Failing).
All candidates for graduation must have their study abroad transcripts submitted to the Office of Records and Registration by the second Friday of the month in which they plan to graduate. Stern students who participate in study abroad programs must receive passing grades in their courses at the partner school in order to receive academic credit at Stern. The course is recorded as a "P" for Pass on the Stern transcript. The passing grade received abroad is not factored into the Stern GPA.
