Graduate Catalog

Requirements for Degree Conferral

Most graduate programs at Barry University allow candidates seven years to complete their degree requirements. However, the time limitations imposed by some programs may vary and it is the responsibility of the degree candi-date to determine the applicable time limit. Please refer to the section of the catalog outlining your program of study for requirements specific to your degree.

Students expecting to graduate at the end of any semester must:

  1. achieve a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 in their graduate program;
  2. complete all degree requirements specified for the appropriate degree program; and
  3. submit a “Graduation Application” form with the Office of the Registrar no later than the date specified in the Academic Calendar for the semester in which they expect to graduate; a graduation application fee applies each time a student registers for graduation.

With the exception of the School of Law, honors are not awarded at the graduate level.

Graduating students with outstanding financial obligations of $1,000 or greater will not receive a cap and gown and will not be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony.
