Application for Graduation

Students must apply for graduation as they near the completion of their programs (degree, certificate, or otherwise). Application can be made by completing a form available through the registrar’s office. Among the required information is the specified diploma or certificate name (see Student Name requirements for additional information). Failure to apply for graduation in a timely manner may result in delayed degree conferral, inability to participate in a commencement ceremony, or a late graduation fee. The registrar’s office posts application deadlines for each program.

Following the application for graduation, registrar staff will review a student’s degree audit and Student Financial Services will post the graduation fee (as may be required for each program) to each student’s account. Graduation fees cover all aspects of the graduation and degree conferral process and are necessary regardless of each student’s participation in a commencement ceremony.
