Graduation Application Process

To be considered for graduation, students are required to complete a degree audit and graduation application with their advisor or advising coordinator. Students should contact the Advising Coordinator in their college for more information on completing the graduation application and audit.


A graduation application fee will be charged to the student's account before the census date (11th class day for spring and fall; 5th class day for summer) of their graduating semester. This fee is charged to all students who apply to graduate with a bachelor degree, associate degree, or technical certificate, regardless of participation in the commencement ceremony. The fee is good for one calendar year. The graduation application fee does not cover the cost of the cap and gown worn at commencement.


A student who fails to complete the degree during the intended semester has one calendar year to complete the degree or they must reapply for graduation. Completion of the requirements for graduation will be noted on transcripts at the end of the semester the requirements are met.



Commencement ceremonies are held at the conclusion of the spring and fall semesters.

Additional information about Commencement can be found on the Commencement FAQ page.
