Graduation Information

Apply for Graduation

All students applying for graduation must complete the online graduation application through Web for Students.  Please review the important deadlines below and additional information related to the commencement ceremonies.

Completion of a degree program is the student's responsibility.  The student's lack of knowledge or misinterpreting policies and regulations does not clear them from completing all degree requirements.  Students who fail to graduate during the semester they have applied must complete a new application form for the semester the degree will be completed.
