Degree Requirements


Full-time students should file an application for graduation/Bachelor of Science degree with the School of Education at the beginning of the senior year. Part-time students should file an application for a degree two semesters before the completion of the requirements. On the Bloomington campus, students must apply online through TEIS. Application for a degree is the student’s responsibility, and the School of Education will not be responsible for the graduation of students who fail to file their applications.

The graduation ceremony is held by the Indiana University Alumni Association two times a year: December and May. Degrees are conferred in December, May, June and July. Candidates for degrees in June and July may participate in the May commencement. Global Gateway for Teachers candidates may choose to participate in the graduation ceremony the semester before they complete their student teaching. Diplomas are mailed to students' home addresses approximately 10-12 weeks after the degree is formally granted by the faculty and recorded by the University Registrar.
