Complete an Application to Graduate online through Trailhead.

NOTE This must be done once you have completed 90.0 credit hours. The deadline for the application is the first day of class of the semester you are graduating. Once the Application to Graduate is complete, the application will be automatically entered into the system. You can now view an updated graduation date on Trailhead.

The Registrar’s Office will complete an Office Degree Audit of the student’s file.

Review the Official Degree Audit, which will be sent to you via e-mail two to three weeks after the Application to Graduate has been submitted (may take longer during peak times). If you have questions regarding your Degree Audit or need to change your graduation date, please respond to the e-mail with your Official Degree Audit so that your information will be easily accessible and your question will be answered ASAP.

Degree audit questions can also be answered by appointment with the Registrar’s Office. Please stop by or send an e-mail to registrar@mines.edu to schedule an appointment.

Once a student has received his or her Official Degree Audit, it is the responsibility of the student to monitor the progress of his or her degree program or programs with the assistance of his or her academic advisor. If any corrections are necessary, the student must contact the Registrar’s Office.

During your final term, you will receive information regarding Senior Salute and the Commencement Ceremony from the Dean of Students’ Office. This information will be sent via regular mail. Be sure to review all of the information to order graduation announcements, pictures, and anything else necessary for the ceremony. The dates of Senior Salute and Commencement Practice will also be noted in this information.

Students admitted fall 2020 or students who changed their catalog year to fall 2020 or later will use Degree Works.

  1. Log into Trailhead.
  2. Select the Degree Works icon at the bottom of the page (as shown below). 
  3. Click on the blue “Dashboard” button.
  4. Enter your student ID in the “Student ID” box and hit “Enter”.
