Overview of Graduation Procedures
To ensure that all academic requirements are met in time for participation in the May graduation ceremony, students will be advised at the beginning of the Academic Year of the year they expect to graduate as to when they must have all their credits, their Master’s Thesis completed and all appropriate forms signed and turned into the Program Administration. Students who do not expect to make the May graduation deadline should speak to the Program Administrator and Program Director as soon as possible to make plans to finish the degree requirements in a timely fashion.
It is important to note that Diplomas are produced only once per year by Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and students who do not meet deadlines for a May or June graduation will not receive a diploma until the following May after they have completed all degree requirements. The Master of Science in Clinical Research and the PhD in Clinical Research itself can be conferred on three other occasions, September 30th, January 30st, and June 30thfollowing completion of all degree requirements. If necessary, prior to receipt of the actual diploma, students can request a letter from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Registrar’s office verifying that they have completed the degree requirements and confirming that the degree has been conferred.
