I missed the graduation application deadline – what can I do?

You will need to contact the appropriate department.

Once I apply for graduation, how long will it take to receive more information?

An official graduation letter will be sent to your University email account during the semester you intend to graduate. This will contain information about your remaining requirements, as well as commencement ceremony information.

Where can I purchase my regalia?

Contact the University Bookstore for information on regalia.

If I walked in the ceremony, does that mean I’ve graduated?

No. A final degree evaluation will be completed before a degree is officially awarded to ensure all requirements have been met.

I applied for graduation but will not graduate. Can I still walk? Do I have to reapply?

You can still walk if you are within three (3) hours of graduation, but must reapply for the term you actually plan to graduate. Students will only be reviewed for graduation if they have an active graduation application for the correct term.

I plan to graduate in August, but there is no commencement ceremony. What are my options?

Students who will meet graduation requirements in August can choose to participate either in the preceding May ceremony or the following December ceremony. If you want to participate in the May ceremony and have your name in the program, you must apply for August graduation by March 15 th.
