Certifying Deans

Certifying Deans

The certifying deans perform the function of certifying all degrees at Eastern and verifying that all graduation requirements have been met. To begin this process a student must apply for graduation, normally this is done after the student completes 60 hours. Once a student has applied for graduation, the certifying dean then conducts a review of the student's records and then contacts the student about exactly what courses need to be completed to graduate.

A student can apply for graduation in PAWS at: http://www.eiu.edu/paws/
