Graduation and Certificate
Graduating -The International Program is designed for four-year study. However, students can finish the program within 3 to 6 years once she/he meets all the graduating requirements. The case that students can graduate within 3 years is comparatively rare in the real situation, and the CIP office cannot make sure that each student can graduate within 3 years. Normally students need to spend four or more than four years to finish tha academic tasks in CIP.
The extended learning period starts from the fifth year, and the undergraduate students are allowed to study in the university for 6 years at maximum (including the period of schooling suspension, except the period of serving in the army).
And please pay attention here. Students are only allowed to take maximum three courses together with the graduation thesis in the last semester, namely the semester that students are going to graduate.
E.g. If you take 4 courses together with the graduation thesis, your application for graduation will not be approved by the office, which means you need to register in CIP for one more semester. And meanwhile, you are only allowed to study in CIP for 6 years at maximum, therefore please schedule your study pace wisely.

Students need to submit the Application for Graduation before the 3rd week of the semester before the semester student is planning to graduate. Academic Affairs Officer will review the student’ academic profile and determine his/her qualification to proceed to the stage of thesis and graduate on time.

The students should go through the procedures of leaving school after graduation, and receive the Graduation Certificate and Degree Certificate with the receipt of finishing the leaving school procedures, as well as terminating the identity of a student. The university will not deal with the formalities of extending the term of Residence Permit for study, and graduating students shall leave school within fifteen days.
