Graduation & Beyond

Ready to Graduate?


Congratulations – you’ve almost earned your undergraduate degree!  Now there are just a few more steps to complete.

1. Schedule a ‘grad check’ appointment with a HPHY advisor at least one term before you plan to graduate. This will give you some time to address unanticipated gaps or issues.

2. Apply to graduate on Duckweb Student Menu:



**NOTE – applying to graduate and walking in commencement are not the same thing!  Apply to graduate for the term you will complete your requirements.  Applying to graduate will not impact your participation in spring commencement ceremonies, regardless of the term you are applying for.



3. Signing up to participate in the HPHY commencement ceremony is easy!  If you are close to finishing your degree requirements, you should begin receiving email alerts from the Undergraduate Coordinator, beginning winter term.  These emails will contain important information so be sure to read them carefully.  Week 1 spring term you will be emailed a link to a qualtrics survey – by completing the survey you will be signed up to walk in the HPHY graduation ceremony.  If you are not receiving the graduation emails, be sure to contact the Undergrad Coordinator.

4. Review the University-wide check-list for additional considerations.

Graduate School

The human physiology major requirements emphasize a depth and breadth in the biological and physical sciences that include many standard requirements for admission to medical, dental, physical therapy, nursing, and other allied-health science schools. Additional courses, beyond the major requirements, are often required for many of these programs.

Students seeking a career in a health profession should work closely with advisors from the Health Professions Program to plan their program of study to meet the specific admission requirements of the postgraduate schools in which they are interested.
