Upon completion of the academic requirements, follow this graduation checklist:

1. Apply for graduation via Wolverine Access.  Click on the Student Business link within the Students tab on Wolverine Access.  You can access the Apply for Graduation page through both the Student Center and Degree Progress/Graduation tabs.

2. Please verify that you fulfilled all the requirements (9 graduate credit hours of coursework, practicum and journal club) by emailing neuro-micde@umich.edu

  • If you are a Master students:

i. Complete the Rackham Dual/Joint Degree Election Form.

♦ Master degree courses go in the left column while the certificate in CN courses counted towards the 9 credits go in the right column.
♦ ONLY courses counted towards the 9 credits should go on this form (not the practicum – if applicable)
♦ You can only double count 3 credit hours, that is, the left and right columns can maximally have 3 credit hours in common.

ii. Have the form signed by your academic/research advisor or departmental academic coordinator (electronic signature is OK).

If you are a Ph.D. student:

You don’t need to complete a Rackham Dual/Joint Degree Election Form unless you are getting an Embedded Masters. If, as a Ph.D. student, you are getting an Embedded Masters Degree within you program, please make sure you have enough credits for both, the master and the certificate. Specifically, make sure you are only double-counting one course (or 3 credits) between the Masters Degree and the Graduate Certificate in CN. In this case you will have to complete the Rackham Dual/Joint Degree Election Form (see above).

5. Electronically submit the completed form(s) to neuro-micde@umich.edu.

All paperwork with signatures are due by the last day of classes of the semester you plan to graduate from your home degree.  Failure to submit all required documents will result in you not being able to graduate with the certificate that semester.
