Apply for Graduation

Prospective graduates must submit an Application for Graduation to the Registrar and pay the graduation fee before they can be considered for graduation. Students are advised to file the application in the quarter preceding that in which they expect to graduate.

During each registration period, graduating seniors meet with their advisors to determine whether their proposed class enrollments meet all requirements for their degrees.  For doctoral students, two bound copies of the dissertation must be submitted to the Registrar and University Librarian before the degree can be awarded.

About two (2) months after the date of graduation (program completion), diplomas are available for pick up in person at the University. For an additional fee, diplomas will be mailed to those graduates who cannot pick up their diploma in person. Along with the diploma, two (2) copies of your transcript will be issued free of charge.

Graduation ceremonies are held once a year in June.
