Graduation Application & Commencement Information


Deadlines to Apply for Graduation

Students are required to apply for graduation at least one semester prior to when they intend to graduate.  This allows adequate time for the students to review his or her graduation requirements with his or her academic advisor. 

The deadline to apply for May graduation is the first week of November.  The deadline to apply for August or December graduation is the first week of April.  Please consult the Academic Calendar for the exact date. 

Once a student has applied for graduation and has scheduled for his or her last semester, the Registrar’s Office will conduct a pre-gradation audit.  The results of this audit will be sent to both student and his or her academic advisor.

Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the student, not the Registrar’s Office, to see that all requirements are met under the student’s assigned catalog year.
