Graduation Application Deadlines

If you fail to apply for graduation, your graduation date will be postponed. Students should apply to graduate for the term in which all degree requirements will be completed. Summer candidates (*) are invited to participate in either the spring or fall ceremony; however, if they wish to walk in the spring ceremony, the candidates should apply for summer graduation but submit the application by the fifth week of the spring term to be included in the spring commencement program. College of Medicine students may choose to walk in the Main Campus December ceremony or the College of Medicine Spring ceremony. Indicate your preference on the application. All summer graduates will be invited to the fall ceremony held in December.
Online graduation applications are currently open through Spring 2020. All students should apply for graduation for the term in which they will complete their degree requirements.

Miss the deadline?

Undergraduate Certificates

You may still apply after the deadline, however you should contact your college office to let them know you've applied to graduate and may not have appeared on their earlier reports of candidates for an upcoming graduation.

Undergraduate Students

You may still apply after the posted deadline for graduation. However, applying to graduate after the deadline means you may miss important graduation-related mailings, may not appear in the commencement program, and may not allow your college or department sufficient time to complete an evaluation of your record prior to the term's end. If you apply to graduate after the deadline, you must be proactive in making final preparations for graduation and commencement to help ensure it goes smoothly. Contact your college office to let them know you've applied to graduate and may not have appeared on their earlier reports of candidates for an upcoming graduation.

Graduate Students

Applications for graduation may be accepted after the deadline date. However, applying after the deadline may mean the student may miss graduation related information and mailings and the student's name may not appear in the commencement program. Students in the College of Graduate Studies at both the Main and Health Science campuses as well as students in the Master of Business Administration program should contact their academic adviser for further information when applying after the posted deadline.

Law Students

You may still apply for graduation after the posted deadline, however, applying after the deadline may mean you miss important graduation-related mailings and your name may not appear in the commencement program or honors book. Contact the College of Law Registrar's Office for further information when applying after the posted deadline.
