Petition to Graduate
In order to graduate, all Northwestern students must submit a "Petition to Graduate" with the Registrar. Normally, you do this in the spring quarter of your third year. All art history majors must meet with the Art History Director of Undergraduate Studies to approve this form before submitting it to the Registrar. Please have a draft of the form (filled out in pencil) ready when you meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and please be sure to bring a copy of your transcript/Degree Progress Report.
It might also be helpful to consult the rules regarding majors/minors and the counting of courses to your degree.
Please be sure to keep yourself informed of all important dates regarding registration, class times, exams, and so forth with the Northwestern Academic Calendar.
