Instructions for Completing a Graduation Application

Before a student can graduate, he or she must apply for graduation by the posted deadlines.  An application must be completed even if a student does not intend to participate in commencement. Graduation Applications are available from this web page (click here). Applications are also available in the Registrar's Office and in most college offices.

The following information is provided to answer questions you may have while completing the graduation application:

Diploma Name

Print your name as you want it to appear on your diploma as well as in the graduation program, using your legal last name. The University will use the last name appearing on your computer record. If that name is incorrect, you must provide proof of the correct name to update our computer records. First names must be a full name, initial, or a recognizable abbreviation of the first name shown on our computer records. If you do not wish to have your name appear in the commencement program, clearly state (Do Not Publish) in this same area after your name.

Diploma Address

Your diploma will be mailed to the address listed as Diploma Address. Students may email the Office of the Registrar at graduation@utoledo.edu to update this address before diplomas are mailed. If you want to pick up your diploma from the Office of the Registrar, indicate "Hold for Pickup" as the diploma address. 

Term

If you will complete your degree requirements in the summer term and you wish to walk in the spring ceremony, you should apply for summer but submit your application by the fifth week of spring to have your name appear in the spring commencement program. College of Medicine students may choose to walk in the Main Campus December ceremony or the College of Medicine June ceremony. Indicate your preference on the application.
