Graduation Ceremony

Graduation Information

Students fulfilling requirements for a UAB master's or doctoral degree must submit an "Application for Graduation" to their major departments by the application deadline stated on the Graduate School Deadline Dates website.

The doctoral degree is granted in recognition of (1) scholarly proficiency and (2) distinctive achievement in a specific field of an academic discipline. The first component is demonstrated by successful completion of advanced coursework (of both a didactic and an unstructured nature) and by adequate performance on the comprehensive examination. Traditionally, the student demonstrates the second component by independently performing original research.
