Graduation Application

Students must file an Application for Degree with the Office of the University Registrar, 107 Canfield Administration Building South, early in the semester in which they intend to graduate. Failure to meet the published deadline will delay a graduation one full term.

For May graduates the application deadline is the last Friday in January; for August graduates the application deadline is the last Friday in June; and for December graduates the application deadline is the last Friday in September each year.

A $25 nonrefundable degree application fee must accompany the application for each degree. If you are graduating with multiple degrees in a single term, you must complete a separate Application for Degree form and pay a $25.00 non-refundable fee for each degree. The fee applies only to the term marked on the application and is not transferable to another term.
