Graduation Application Process

To be considered for graduation, students are required to complete a degree audit and graduation application with their advisor or advising coordinator. Students should contact the advising coordinator in their college for more information on completing the graduation application and audit.
A student who fails to complete the degree during the intended semester has one calendar year to complete the degree or they must reapply for graduation. Completion of the requirements for graduation will be noted on transcripts at the end of the semester the requirements are met.


Commencement ceremonies take place at the conclusion of the fall and spring semesters for those who apply to graduate in those semesters. Summer graduates may choose to participate in the previous spring ceremony or the following fall ceremony, but not both.

See the Commencement Information page for more information about the current commencement ceremony.
