Applying for Degree
Students planning to graduate at the end of the current semester (spring 2016) will file an application for degree online and by submitting a supplemental application. You must pay required fees at Texas A&M University at Qatar and not on the website at Howdy. Please do NOT pay any graduation fees online.
All major/minor changes, additions and deletions must be submitted to the Office of Records three days prior to the graduation deadline. All changes must show on your degree plan on Howdy before you can apply for graduation. The online application for degree is to be done through howdy.tamu.edu.
The supplemental application can be found here. Supplemental Application
Deadline for application (both the online and supplemental): Thursday, 11 Feb. 2016, by 4 p.m. Fee payment: Exact cash payment (we cannot make change) must be made at the Office of Records at the time your supplemental application is submitted.
Commencement attire: All commencement attire is ordered through Office of Records during the Spring term in preparation for May commencement. If you do not already have attire, measurements for your gown will be taken when you submit your supplemental application. Commencement will be Thursday, 5 May 2016. Details will be provided as they become available.
Are you currently taking a course at another college or university? Students applying for graduation, who are cross-registered or enrolled in a course at another college or university, must complete the Proof of Enrollment form. Please carefully read and follow all instructions on the form.
In addition to the proof of enrollment form, students are required to submit an official transcript. Providing an official transcript helps determine how credits will be applied to the degree plan. The official transcript must be sent directly from the institution or in a sealed envelope. The official transcript must indicate the coursework in-progress. Please note: if you are unable to obtain an official transcript, the following are examples of alternative forms of verification: an official tuition bill with coursework listed or a student schedule of classes. The alternative verification must be from the institution that you are currently enrolled and must include:
- Your name
- The course name(s) and number(s)
- The institution’s name
The proof of enrollment form as well as the proof of enrollment must be submitted to the Office of Records by the Q-drop deadline.
