Apply to Graduate

The first and most important step: applying for graduation

All degree candidates must apply to graduate.

Each school or department has its own procedures and deadlines for applying. Do it early in your final year—if not before—to avoid missing your school’s deadline. If you applied to graduate on a previous date, but did not graduate, you must reapply.

If you don’t apply, you will not receive important Commencement information, your name will not appear in the program, and you will not be sent a diploma.

Your school’s recorder will have instructions and deadlines for applying to graduate.
