Students planning to graduate from UHD with a CST major must file an electronic application for graduation. The $50 application fee is nonrefundable, so we urge students to meet with a CST advisor before submitting the application and fee. An advisor can assess whether the potential applicant is “on track” to graduate in a particular semester.


To be successfully “certified for graduation” by CST, a student must have:

    1. declared his/her major;

    2. completed the degree plan for a CST major,

    3. a UHD grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher,

    4. a GPA of 2.0 or higher for those courses taken in his/her major,

    • a grade of C or better is required in all courses that apply towards all degrees in MATH, CIET, FPET, SAFE, SAD, STAT and CS.
    • for all degrees in NS (BPS, BIOL, BIOT, and CHEM) students may have one D in an upper-level NS courses.

    5. up-to-date transcripts from all other universities attended,

    6. taken his/her final 30 semester credit hours at UHD (per UHD policy) and

    7. taken 18 semester credit hours at the upper level (3000 and above) at UHD.


If an applicant does not complete the requirements for the degree in the current semester, applicant will not be refunded the $50 application fee and must reapply for graduation.
