Important Information About These Reports

The Degree reports allow users to obtain information on the various degrees awarded by the university each term and the majors and minors associated with each degree.

  • Information for all degrees awarded since Fall 1990 are available; information for degrees awarded before Fall 1990 may not be available.
  • The degree types included in these reports include bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees; certificates awarded by the university are not included.
