IDP proposals should be submitted within 3 – 6 months of when you start developing your IDP, but at least one year prior to graduation. The earlier you develop your proposal, the better. Refer to the guidelines for other specific requirements for each program: IDP Major, IDP Extended Major, or IDP Minor.
2 semesters before graduation, to ensure you finish your degree on time:
May graduates – Submit final IDP proposal by September 30 (draft due 30 days earlier)
August graduates – Submit final IDP proposal by February 28 (draft due 30 days earlier)
December graduates – Submit final IDP proposal by April 30 (draft due 30 days earlier)
**Your IDP advisor May establish an earlier deadline based on your specific situation**
Possibilities for graduation on time diminish with each passing day after these deadlines. The deadlines above will ensure timely graduation. Students beginning or completing an IDP proposal outside these dates should consult with their IDP advisor and recognize that official graduation may be delayed by one or more semesters.
Please consult carefully with your IDP advisor to be sure that you submit your proposal in a timely fashion.
FINAL STEP: In addition to receipt of your signed IDP proposal in our office, candidates for graduation must apply to graduate online through the Student Hub. See the Registrar’s website or visit their office in JSSB for deadline dates (during the semester prior to when you plan to graduate). If your IDP proposal has not yet been received in our office, with signatures from your faculty advisor, department chair, and dean, you may not apply for graduation.
