Ready for graduation? Take a minute to prepare!

Congratulations on approaching the finish line of your university career! Whatever path the next phase of  your life takes you, you're completing an important milestone with the completion of your degree... but there's one important checkpoint before you go:

Complete your application to graduate now!

Step-by-step: Complete your
graduation application!

You've probably already completed a graduation checklist with your academic advisor. (If not, talk to her or him right now!) But the graduation checklist is not the same as applying for graduation.

To graduate, receive your degree and walk across the stage at Commencement, you must complete an application to graduate. There's an application fee involved, a deadline, and the possibility for late fees if you are not complete in time.

The non-refundable Graduation Application Fee is $50 for all applicants who apply before the application deadline. Fees are to be paid at the Business Office (FH 108C.) Students who do not apply by the Application Deadline will be assessed an additional $20 late fee and will be eligible for conferral only... meaning you won't march at Commencement!
