Graduation Policies and Procedures

In order to graduate from Drexel University with a Juris Doctor degree, a student must satisfactorily complete all graduation requirements as established by the law school. Students should submit an Application for Degree through DrexelOne by the published deadline. Upon acceptance of the application, the student is considered a candidate for the J.D. degree. Upon successful completion of all graduation requirements, degree candidates will be awarded the Juris Doctor (J.D.) by Drexel University. The University Registrar’s Office will send diplomas to all law graduates through the mail approximately one month after graduation, or, you may pick up your diploma at the Law School from Dean McGovern.
