Degrees Awarded

Degrees awarded represents the number of degrees conferred in a fiscal (or academic) year, including each semester— fall, spring, and summer. Degrees awarded does not represent the number of students receiving awards; instead, it is the total number of degrees awarded—which may include multiple awards for some students.
