Keep in touch with the people and offices that will help you graduate.  Make sure you are taking the courses needed to meet your degree requirements and that your academic record is accurate and up to date. 

You must apply for graduation before the degree application submission deadline in each semester’s Schedule of Classes.  If you submit your application after the early application deadline, you will be charged a late application fee in addition to the stated graduation fee – and you run the risk of your name not appearing in the Commencement program.

Step : APPLY
Undergraduate degree candidates apply for graduation at your college dean's office; check early for the dates you can process your application.  

Graduate and Doctoral degree candidates apply with your academic advisor, and then take your application to the Graduate Student Services Office for approval;

Check here for Gradute Student information and clearance dates.

Submit your graduate advisor approved application form to the Graduate Student Services Office two weeks prior to the published date for the early application deadline to allow sufficient time for a complete review of your academic record.  Applications received after that date are not guaranteed to be approved prior to the late fee assessment.

Step : PAY
Pay for the fee online or at the Cashiers in the Academic Services Building.
