Graduation Assignment Clearance Form:How can I upload my Graduation Clearance Form?

(Last edited: Monday, 13 July 2020, 11:49 AM)

No student is allowed to upload and defend their Graduation Assignment/Final Project unless they have uploaded a completed and signed clearance form at the time of submission of the final version (the deadline is same for the final version of GA/FP submission and clearance form). The clearance form shows that a student has completed all the required exams except the Final Project and have achieved 60 European Credits, and paid all outstanding dues to the institution.

A scanned copy of the properly filled out and signed Clearance Form (check EEG, Part 8) by all departments should be uploaded by the student in the Master's GA/FP online area before the deadline (Check module online area for exact time and date).

However, during this COVID-19 situation, this practice has been suspended until further notice. Students can check the status of this requirement via the GA (Final Project) module online area.
